Silk ribbon embroidery
I have tried embroidery from time to time but haven't been impressed with the results, but now I have discovered silk ribbon embroidery courtesy of Di van Niekerk, and I can't wait to start working with silk ribbon as an embroidery medium (if I can find the time...!).
Di van Niekerk is a professional fiber arts instructor, designer and author and she has her own range of silk/organza ribbons and printed panels for embroidery which are exported worldwide. She is the author of ten books: Di van Niekerk's Roses in Silk and Organza Ribbon, A Perfect World in Ribbon Embroidery & Stumpwork , Flower Fairies in Ribbon Embroidery & Stumpwork, Embroidered Alphabets with ribbon embroidery, Ribbon Embroidery & Stumpwork and Dreamscapes in Ribbon Embroider y & Stumpwork , amongst others .
What a wonderful idea for a Mother's Day gift, or a gift for a special occasion. You will find step-by-step instructions on how to do silk ribbon embroidery on Di's website.
