embellishing your silk ribbon embroideries




Basic Crazy Quilt Block before embellishing.


Dimension and Pizazz


Stepping up to the next level in SRE.

 Once you have mastered the technique of  SRE stitches and shaping these into flowers,
 leaves, insects, etc. now it is time to take a step up.

Layering, textures, variances of colour, reflections, highlights all add a different effect and
give dimension to your work.

Get together an assortment of beads, sequins, metallic threads ( eg. Kreinik) glass and lucite
flowers and leaves and see how it will change the effect of your work.  Keep in mind Clear
Beading Thread as an option for stitching down laces, braid etc.  No need to change your
thread constantly to match the item, it blends in well.  ( Obviously this will not work for
a basic dark colour such as black, but with variances in shades will disguise well.)

Crazy Patch Seam Embellishment is one example of this with the use of various stitches,
Beads and Sequins.



Adding these type of elements can give your embroidery a more whimsical effect or
increase the sequins and beading and instantly it becomes more glamourous.

 Let's admit it ladies we can all do with some BLING!!!!!
