Ribbon embroidery flower kits

Do you like ribbon embroidery?
Have you tried it?
I 💜 Red heart it!
How can a flat piece of silk ribbon be turned into this……

It just stands out from the fabric.

My Lavender Flowers are made from one stitch.
Ribbon Stitch.

These new kits are super easy.

I have printed the design onto the fabric, so you just embroidery over the top.

You can achieve stunning results.

Finished kits are 10cm by 10cm,

and all you need to make the kits, is an embroidery hoop (if you use one),
scissor and a ruler.

Evening ribbon fans 
Kelly here to share  a card I made using the yummy strawberry ribbons available from Crafty Ribbons. I think these ribbons are so versatile and can be used for many projects including cute cards..

After colouring this image I knew exactly what ribbon I wanted to use with her. The red colour and dots on the ribbon go great with her hair ribbon and the strawberries on the cakes just make this the perfect ribbon to finish this card.

Hope you like it.

Hooked with Love

Happy New Year to all our ribbon fans.

It's Ali here today, sharing two of my Christmas present makes that I wrapped using our Exclusive ribbons.

These two crochet blankets were for my two sisters, they took me a total of 4 months to crochet.

They certainly were Hooked with love!
They took it in turns to come with me to all the Autumn exhibitions, up and down the country.  
Bev's came to Dublin and I managed to start joining it on the looooooong journey home in the lorry.  It was a very long day, alarm clock went off at stupid o'clock to catch the ferry. We finally pulled into the warehouse to unload late evening, by which time it was far to dark to crochet.

The white Hooked with Love was perfect for Rachie's to match the white polka dots.
Rachie is a little crazy about red and white polka dots!
I did hear her squeal when she opened her present.

You can find this ribbon here

I used the Antique White colour way on Bev's blanket here

Thank you for popping by and having a read.
