The bases for these two pillows were made from pieced silk fabric embellished with vintage jacquard ribbons. The embroidery is worked silk ribbon widths of 2mm, 4mm, and 7mm; cotton and silk floss, hand-dyed perle cotton, and silk buttonhole twist. These pillows can be found in the gallery section of my book, Embroidered and Embellished by C&T Publishing.
This is a series of classes that I taught on-line for Joggles, Corsages to Dye For I, Corsages to Dye For II, and Corsages to Dye For III. The student learned how to mix colors and dye her own ribbons. The flowers and leaves were made with ribbonwork techniques, and a little bit of embroidery. Many of the techniques can be found in my two ribbonwork books by C&T Publishing.
This is an excellent class to learn about the joy of hand embroidery with silk ribbon. Basic stitches and more will be covered in class, referring to the directions in my book Embroidered and Embellished.
*Please note that this class does not include any of the materials, supplies or tools; these must be purchased by the student.
