Stitched Ribbon Flower
by Beate Johns
Create a flower out of ribbon or lace.
- Ribbon or lace
- Needle and thread, or sewing machine
- Button or brad
Start running the needle through the edge of the ribbon or lace in big stitches.
Continue to stitch the edge of the ribbon until you arrive at the other end.
Keep the needle on the thread and pull the thread to bunch the ribbon together in a circle.
Line up the two ends of the ribbon on top of each other.
Stitch the two ends of the ribbon together.
Turn flower over so the seam is in the back. Now pull the thread ends again until the flower is a shape you like.
Turn the flower back over and tie the thread in a knot and cut off.
Add a button or brad in the flower center.
Use flower to decorate a card, scrapbook page or other project.
