Bear & Bunny Patch (Bucilla silk ribbon kit #41287)
Cotton flannel, floss, silk ribbon
The bear and bunnies were appliqued to the pillow cover using a simple blanket stitch surrounded by a beautiful garden of silk ribbon flowers.
I love the tactile feel of silk, whether it's ribbon or fiber. It's slick and smooth like a sugar lollipop.
This project wasn't difficult at all. I would call it a beginner project in ribbon embroidery. The stitches used for the flowers were straight stitch, Japanese ribbon stitch, french knot and free form. The bunny and bear tails were ruched ribbon and the bows were looped.
For my next adventure, hmmmm, what will I try? Brazilian embroidery or more stump work? I have no idea!
