Back Cover Information

This book shows you how to use four basic stitches: ribbon stitch, which is unique to ribbon embroidery, straight stitch, French knot and lazy daisy stitch. Also demonstrated are a range of gathering techniques which you can use to create a wide variety of flowers and plants. Also shown is how to add depth to an embroidery by painting the fabric background, and how to color the ribbon before you start or to shade the petals after the flower has been embroidered.

You do not have to be artistic, or to have any special skills to embroider flowers with silk ribbons. Once you have learned the basic stitches, you will be ready to work through the individual flower designs and then the larger projects. To help guide you through these basic templates have been included for each design and step-by-step illustrations.
