Silk Ribbon

 I am having loads of fun doing silk ribbon work and using some of the beautiful beads I bought recently. At Exeter Quilt Show I shall be doing a class on silk ribbon stitches and I thought I'd start doing some sample pieces. Silk ribbon work is so therapeutic! And it is quick to dye!

I covered these coat hangers some time ago and decorated them with silk ribbon flower sprays. I am now making some more in a similar format. They make wonderful gifts and with Mothering Sunday coming up what could be better! 

I am going to make small notebook covers too as they are quick and easy to do! 

This small spray of buds and a rose was also quick to do and I will finish it by attaching the fabric to a brooch pin so it can be worn on a lapel! I really love doing this! 


  1. Hard to believe that those flowers began as a flat ribbon. You have a knack for bring the flowers to blooming beauty.

  2. absolutely beautiful - bet they look even more stunning in "real life" - you need to send the LOT to me - purely in the interests of furthering my interest ..
