Ribbon Embroidery : With 178 Iron-On Transfers


The Victorian-era trend of silk ribbon embroidery is back, and this comprehensive guide offers both easy-to-follow instructions for the delicate art and dozens of iron-on transfer pattern designs. Needleworkers will love the wealth of winsome patterns — floral sprays, topiaries, bouquets, flower baskets, and miniature nosegays along with hat, fan, and heart motifs as well as dainty “alphabet flowers,” with each letter of the alphabet represented as a flower or plant (Anemone, Bluebell, Calla, Dahlia, etc.). Flowers and leaves embroidered in silk ribbon possess a lovely dimensional quality that seems to float above the background fabric. This beautiful technique features stitches that work up quickly and easily and an extremely versatile number of applications. Personal and domestic accessories such as belts, ties, scarves, hair ornaments, towels, table linens, and quilts are beautifully enhanced by ribbon embroidery. The simplicity of the instructions and illustrations for these designs assures that even novices will master a variety of lovely stitches.
