Today I want to tell you how I embroider peony with satin ribbons.
You will need:
- satin ribbon of 1.2 cm, 2 cm, 4 cm wide;
- gabardine fabric;
- needle with large eye;
Cut the tape to 6-8 cm length, I cut to a palm wide (4 fingers).
The number of petals depends on how lush you want to make a flower.
Once cut into strips, begin to form petals.
Mark the middle of a strip, to the middle of it, thus forming 2 ends.
Have a wide tape cut corners and round off the other end of the tape, and make a few notches.
Then we begin to fire.
Hold the lighter at 4-5 cm distance, fire carefully not to burn the ribbon.
After making the petals, begin to embroider.
Make the middle with a few chain stitches with 1.2 cm ribbon.
Then, inserted a needle into the prepared petals and threading them through the fabric one by one.
You can see the whole process of embroidery and making petals in this video. Enjoy!
