Embroidery ribbon "Flower Embroidery"

Embroidery ribbon

Today I will introduce "Flower embroidery" made with embroidery ribbon.

I am using "embroidery ribbon", which combines silk-like softness and beautiful colors. I combined several steps and had a go at flower embroidery. It was my first attempt at ribbon embroidery, but it felt like an extension of sewing, and it was easier to do than I thought!

You can embroider cloth and display it, or add small needlepoint designs to ready-made goods like I did here. I'm sure you'll be able to enjoy it in various ways.
