Scrumptious Scraps

dyed silk ribbon and threads embroidered with silk ribbon embroidery techniques
large image

Silk ribbon worked flowers and leaves with silk ribbon embroidery stitches over a base of pieced and dyed lace and fabric scraps.


Basically, bits and pieces of precious laces are melded and stitched together to form a single fabric. After the lace fabric is formed, it is then dyed, along with ribbons to embellish the piece with. The second part of the class will focus on silk ribbon embroidery and flower making, using the ribbons that you dyed in the first part of class and the base of lace fabric.
