This is a jacket from my UPCYCLE-IT program. I took a jean jacket that I bought at the thrift store for $5.99 and embellished it with the sample and prototype flowers from both of my ribbonwork books, Ribbonwork Gardens and Ribbonwork Flowers from C&T Publishing.
Many of you know that I love hearts! I love the shapes and all of the possibilities. This is a close-up view of the front of my vest titled “Beribboned”. The vest is covered in lace applique hearts that are encrusted in silk and satin ribbonwork flowers and leaves, and silk ribbon embroidery.
