My very first attempt at silk ribbon embroidery and though I can see many mistakes, I am overall pleased with the result! 🙂 On hindsight, I wish now I hadn’t crowded it with so many flowers and French knots. I wish also that I hadn’t painted the green and orange bits. I mostly wish that the starter’s kit that I had bought to practise this embroidery on had something a little more special than just plain white sewing cloth.
I started my embroidery in Dubai at Craftsland which is the only place in Dubai selling silk ribbons. I took a 3 day course in learning how to get started with it. I had a lovely instructor called Iman who was very helpful and gave me as many tips possible. Being busy with everyday life and all that, this project took me over 2 months to complete. I still have to have it framed now!
