When looking for a detail for today I realize that I have always put more detail into the embellishments than what I do into seam treatments because it is the embellishments that I love stitching…So from now on my details will be mainly embellishments…Enjoy
The flower in the centre is made with a 3″ length of 3/8″ satin ribbon, stitch the ends together to form a circle run a gathering thread along one edge, gather tightly and stitch onto background with a bead in the centre…The white flowers are what I call scrunch flowers (instructions below)…a cluster of green beads at each end makes leaves for the arrangement.
To make the scrunch flowers you need about 3 1/2″ of Satin Ribbon.
Overlap ends of ribbon and stitch to background.
About 1/3rd of the way around the ribbon, run a gathering thread across the ribbon.
Take a stitch through the background and tighten till ribbon gathers to form the first petal.
Run a gathering thread across the ribbon half way along the remaining loop.
Take a stitch through the background and tighten till ribbon gathers to form 2 more petals.
Manipulate the petals to shape them and use beads for the flower centre.
