Embroidered Treasures for Silk Ribbon Book two by Helen Dafter
Pure silk ribbon has a beauty, a texture, a charm that improves any piece of embroidery--and no one knows how to create evocative ribbon representations of garden flowers like Helen Dafter. By popular demand, she has put together a companion volume to her first book of embroidered silk treasures, offering more of her invaluable knowledge of materials, techniques, and stitches, as well as several glorious and graded new projects. Gift sachets, perfect for fragrant soaps and potpourri, bloom with pansy or daisy bouquets. Yellow roses trail down a lacy top for a sewing basket, pink and red ones adorn a cushion. Plus: bolsters; landscapes; a blanket; a girl's pinafore with a garden of lavender, foxgloves, hyacinths, lilies-of-the-valley; and daisies; and more!
