A Heart a Day: #18

silk ribbon embroidered heartMy heart is blooming with flowers for you!

This is a close-up view of the front of “Beribbonned“, which is one of my favorite vests. The background fabric is silk, with satin ribbons randomly stitched onto the background. I then dyed lace fabric and cut this into different heart shapes. After these were stitched down, I stitched ribbon worked flowers and leaves, then embroidered these bouquets with silk ribbon embroidery. I stitched beads and charms into the flowers for extra embellishment.

Enjoy what you do! Christen
