ribbon embroidery

ribbon flower stitch 2




                                   
 this is another flower stitch done using 6mm nylon ribbon..


                                   
take ribbon of required length and needle it at one and and knot at the other....
very importantly seal the ends using a lighter and press gently with your fingertips on both the ends... this prevents your ribbon from worning out....


                                       
take out the needle piercing the fabric from the center and pull it gently without spoiling the fabric


   
hold the ribbon with your fingertips , fold and insert the needle over the ribbon as illustrated in the figure. Make it gentle or else your ribbon will torn.....this makes one petal of your flower..

 complete other petals.....

 finished work looks like this.....




 happy embroidery...
