This is definitely going to be my new favourite past time when I am not growing plants or in the garden!
This beautiful step-by-step project book is all about making little flowers in silk and organza ribbon. Using a combination of thread, ribbon embroidery, stumpwork and other techniques, you can produce the most gorgeous poppies, sweet strawberry blossoms, delightful daffodils and a ring of daisies.
There are also magnificent wild roses, chamomiles and meadow grass in 3D, lisianthus and lavender, with butterflies and ladybirds and so much more.
This book is delightful and packed full of information and many new techniques, and will provide inspiration to every silk ribbon enthusiast, from the beginner to the advanced, to share in the joy of learning how to make beautiful life-like flowers and little creatures in ribbon and thread.
All completed projects are smaller than A4 size and templates of all the original designs are included, with easy-to-follow instructions on how to layer the embroidery and stumpwork to achieve the exquisite three- dimensional effect.
An extensive range of step-by-step photographs as well as a complete gallery of stitches make it virtually impossible to go wrong.
This is the first collaboration between internationally acclaimed Di van Niekerk and Russian embroiderer extraordinaire, Marina Zherdeva.
