Silk Ribbon Embroidery Chinese Style : An Illustrated Stitch Guide, Hardback Book

Silk Ribbon Embroidery Chinese Style : An Illustrated Stitch Guide Hardback

Hardback

Description

Silk ribbon embroidery is a handicraft that uses colorful and delicate ribbons as the main material to stitch floral patterns on fabric.

The patterns are three dimensional with defined layering effects which are suitable to decorate evening gowns, sweaters, cushions, and even craft pictures.

This ribbon embroidery book breaks through the traditional style of Western silk ribbon embroidery by incorporating traditional Chinese elements such as simple layouts with liubai (leaving blank) as well as incorporating the contemporary Chinese art to create silk ribbon embroideries that are unique and ethereal.

Readers will find dozens of basic stitching techniques with detailed steps and illustrations that are ranging from small scale decorations on mirrors and handheld fans to large scale stitch art.

The patterns include flowers, trees, fish, prawns, architecture and more.

Among the different stitches, the prawns, peony and lotus leaf are originated by the author with years of experience.
