Ribbon Roses



I can't believe I made this with my own hands. Silk ribbon is magic. The stitches are very simple and the results are impressive.

















I used Sharon's spider web rose (day 26) and added straight stitches to the outside of the largest one. The leaves are fly stitch with a straight stitch at the top. Everything is so simple.

I also found this book on my shelf, which has some good floral patterns.

You stinker! I don't have my ribbons yet but I am itching to get them and try the roses. Yours like just fine!

I am doing some caston roses today and will show them tomorrow. They are pretty cool!

Gee Barbara, you look like a real pro! I'm looking at my silk ribbon now and maybe it's not really silk...uh-oh.

So after seeing your fabulous work I ordered a bunch of ribbons online!
