This irresistible 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 gorgeous poppies, sweet strawberry blossoms, delightful daffodils and a ring or daisies. Or enjoy creating magnificent wild roses, chamomiles and meadow grass in 3D, lisianthus and lavender, with butterflies and ladybirds and so much more.
Packed with information and many new techniques, this book will inspire 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.

Guides you through 12 beautiful projects in ribbon embroidery ranging from the simplistic to more challenging styles
All designs are based on online drawings with accompanying templates
Authored by two internationally renowned fibre-arts professionals specialising in dimensional embroidery
