ribbon embroidery

A simple flower stitch

hello all !

   this is a very simple ribbon flower stitch.... to start with  ..
   take a ribbon of required length.... heat seal both the ends....


  with a  cotton threaded needle  make four  weaving stitches  vertically as shown..
  i"ve used a contrast colour thread for a better view..

turn the ribbon and do the weaving stitches horizontally  towards the end
tie the ribbon  but not too tight....

now stitch this end  of the flower to the fabric
                     arrange the flower and complete by stitching the other end of the flower to the fabric


decorate it with sequins and beads........the finished flower looks like this



happy stitching,
