This project the Ribbon Embroidered Brooch, is a class that I just love to teach. The project is simple and elegant, and one the student can easily finish one in a few hours. There are just a few stitches, the woven rose, lazy daisy, French knot, and chain stitch, with a couched cord edge. These stitches can be found in my book The Embroidery Book by C&T Publishing.
This is a close-up view of a needle case that I made for a class that I teach. The base is crazy-pieced with cotton fabrics and embellished with ribbonwok flowers, silk ribbon embroidered flowers, traditional and silk ribbon embroidery stitches, buttons, charms, vintage tatted trim and appliques. Many of the stitches can be found in my book The Embroidery Book by C&T Publishing.
This project combines lovely vintage handkerchiefs with cotton prints and satin ribbons. The hankies will be your focal point, with the embroidery and detailed edges as part of the design. Add in some vintage buttons to give to complete the project. This class will focus on the embroidery techniques illustrated in my book Embroidered and Embellished by C&T Publishing.
These tiny pieced hearts are a perfect background for these beautiful silk ribbon embroidery stitches. These lovely hearts could also be used as an ornament, a brooch or a small pillow. This class will focus on the embroidery techniques illustrated in my book Embroidered and Embellished by C&T Publishing.
This is a basic introduction to ribbonwork, using the techniques included in my book Ribbonwork Gardens by C&T Publishing. The flowers that will be covered are the Rosette, Posy, Shutterbug Petals, Folded Petals, U-gather Petals, Bias Loop Petals and Ruched Petals.
