From Aquilegia to Zantedeschia, Ann Cox's accomplished renditions of flowers using silk ribbon embroidery are showcased in this exquisite book. It begins with a comprehensive techniques section that includes all the basic techniques you need to know to make all the flowers in the book, including materials; how to handle and work with ribbon; transferring a design to the fabric using a template; the various ribbon stitches and gathering techniques used; and painting ribbons and backgrounds to achieve different effects. The main body of the book then describes clearly how to create thirty-two different flowers, including leaves, stems and buds, using detailed step-by-step instructions and stunning close-up photography. Each design has a template, and diagrams and ideas for variations on the main design are also included where necessary. A fantastic, inspirational book for flower lovers and silk ribbon embroiderers alike.
