I have a few more samples to share of my new FLAT RIBBON. The above sample is stitched on 18 count mono canvas using colour #4. I have highlighted with single stitches using Kreinik size 8 braid in a teal. You can see how beautifully the flat ribbon appears. Yes, I did use a laying tool.
This example shows an easy lacing technique for a crazy quilt seam treatment using silk tacking stitches then lacing with the flat ribbon. And finally,
I thought it would be a good idea to show the viscose tubular ribbon I stock in the shop next to the new flat ribbon. This is colour #12. They are identical in structure (both knitted chainettes), both are viscose BUT there is a significant difference in the width. The tubular has a hollow core which means you can thread it creating gathered effects. The flat ribbon lays flat and cannot be threaded. In coming weeks I will be sharing more samples using the flat ribbon to give you some ideas. 🙂 You may see all of my colour combinations of flat ribbon in the shop.
