Do you have trouble attaching stems to your ribbon flowers.
Well today, I hope to solve both of those problems in one fell swoop.
I've created this ribbon flower with a single stem from a bunch of 12 flower spikes.
Plum Double Faced Satin Ribbon 3m x 23mm
Don't be afraid that this is a lot of difficult sewing. All you need to do is thread the needle and sew a running stitch along three edges.
When you 've done this, pull the thread to gather up the ribbon.
Put the stem in the center of the gather and pull the the ribbon tight around it.
Secure the ribbon with a few tight stitches and a knot or two.
If you can manage it sew through the wider part of the stem at the base of the spikes as this will really secure the ribboon in place. Turn around and admire your work.
How about a bunch of these flowers in a minature vase?
