Suggestions for use of this pattern are: create a vest, purse, pillow, or other unique artwork with these techniques: silk ribbon embroidery, bead and button embellishment.


Come and enjoy a day spent with the finer things in life: silk ribbon embroidery, tapestry fabrics, and (of course) some beads. This is a technique class; the stitches that you will learn are embroidered on a piece of muslin so you can use for reference later. You will also learn to make a few flowers from satin ribbon to further enhance your creation. There will be a few beading tips as well. The Prerequisite class is Garden Brooches.


The project that will help to prepare you for this project is Garden Brooches.

The class handout includes the instructions for the silk ribbon embroidery and the embellishment, it does NOT INCLUDE a garment, purse or pillow pattern.

The class fee does not include any supplies, only the teacher's time and the handout. This is a technique project therefore you will not have a completed project at the end of the class.
