Hi - these are a few of my recent projects combining silk ribbon embroidery, tatting and French knots.
I am really enjoying hand stitching and is not too difficult and is very therapeutic.
There are lots of videos on Youtube for all of these crafts......my favourite tatting tutorials are by Yarnplayer and my love of embroidery and silk ribbon work was inspired by a beautiful book called "Roses" by Di van Niekerk
These roses were all created using 7 mm wide silk ribbon and the tatted edging was done in Lizbeth thread size 20
Silk spider roses with French knot centres and silk leaves
I embroidered the French knots using 3 strands of DMC thread
See you soon
