Ribbon Work Corsages

I love flowers and gardens, I love to look at them and wear them all year long! I have created a few classes and patterns using different ribbon-work techniques.

Afternoon Tea Brooch
Create a feminine brooch from a variety of ribbons, which include: velvet, vintage grosgrains, French jacquards, moire, dyed silk bias. Some beads were used for further embellishment.

Blooming Ribbons
In this pattern you will learn to create some traditional ribbon flowers and leaves and some newly created styles. The possibilities for design and decoration are endless. Make samples of techniques or turn your flowers into an incredible necklace, brooch, purse, or pillow adornment. The finished pieces are completed with ingenious beaded edgings.

Button Nosed Pansy
Learn how to make a pansy with a button center and a beaded edge. Good class or pattern for someone who wants to complete a project in one day!

Cloche Rose
Luscious ruffles of French wire taffeta ribbon are used both for the rose and the leaf. This is a beautiful, large and proud flower that will look stunning on a hat or purse.

One Hour Flower Corsage
This is a great beginning ribbon project to work on. Once you make one you won't want to stop, so be for warned! Learn the very basics of working with wired ribbon by making a gathered rosette with button center and a leaf.

Corsage Medley
Creative and exquisite group of corsages made from velvet and wire ribbons. Chose from three different corsages:
Free Love Corsage: components are 1960" Daisy and Bleeding Heart Leaf
Mc Murtry's Lapel Pin: Lilly, Gwen's Butterfly, and 1920's Leaf
Summer's Signature Corsage: Sunflower, Shadow Leaf and Bow Tie Butterfly.

Happy stitching, enjoy!
