Ribbon Embroidery - my first attempt
Ribbon embroidery has been on my mind for quite a while now..what with all the beautiful works that are real works of art. My love for sewing, embroidery and the crafts was pushing me to go on..but the fear of failure was holding me back. I have been in the mean time trying to watch videos on the stitches used and knowing embroidery really helped to understand things better. And so finally I decided to give it a try and here it is my first attempt at ribbon embroidery. It was fun to work with the ribbons. Although I soon realized that satin ribbon embroidery like it looks in the videos is not really so easy, it requires a lot of patience and the ribbons have to be handled with care to create the right effects. I used satin ribbons for the roses and organza for the leaves.
