It’s so beautiful outside, and with so many flowers in bloom, I cannot stop thinking about how nicely all those flowers would look as silk ribbon embroidery. At this time of the year I literally see everything through the ribbon embroidery prism.
As you may know I’m on my final year of the RSN Future Tutor programme, and it’s literally just a couple of months left till I graduate. I’m struggling at the moment to find any time for extra projects beyond what is in the curriculum, but I have a few ideas that I’d love to share with you. This embroidery mini tutorial might inspire you to start a new project!
This is a fabric print of vintage postcard that I had in stock some time ago. I always checked them before adding on my website. Sometimes I stitched over a tiny piece of print just to fulfil my curiosity and check out how it would look like if embellished with ribbons. However, once I started stitching on this postcard, I just could not bring myself to stop until it’s been completely done.
It’s absolutely stunning postcard, I love that cheeky musician puss hypnotising birds. Look how stunned they are with its beautiful play. Totally paralysed!
I’m totally in love with my new textile postcard. I’m still not sure if it’s a cherry or an apple blossom. First I thought it’s an apple, but pink stamens made me a bit suspicious and now it looks more like a cherry for me. Anyway, flowers of both species are similar in shape and it’s the same way to go about stitching them. I used my favourite silk ribbon embroidery technique to brighten up the print.
