Practicing silk ribbon embroidery.

I trust your holiday weekend is going well.
We had company for a couple of days.
The weather has been hot and humid.
After everyone left, I started working on more silk ribbon embroidery.

I'm still practicing on sachets.
I'm hoping to find a shop that sells supplies here in Michigan.
I don't want to have to keep ordering supplies online.
Enjoy your Labor Day!!
I'm sharing this post at Shabby Art Boutique for Shabbilicious Friday. 


  1. These are absolutely gorgeous! love them.

  2. I love what you did. The pillow is so pretty.

  3. OH my that is so beautiful!!! Just love it. Can't wait to see more!

  4. Wow Debbie they are beautiful. I think you need to open up an etsy shop. Just do not see this ribbon embroidery much anymore and it is so pretty.

  5. Debbie- That is just gorgeous!!!!! I used to know someone that did ribbon embroidery but wasn't smart enough to ask her to show me how to do it. It really is kind of a lost art. GORGEOUS!!!! xo Diana

  6. Debbie,
    These are so pretty. I hope you sell them so I can buy one! Yummy!!!


  7. Hi Debbie
    That is just beautiful* you are good at that already, I don't think its practice :) You can sell them thats for sure. I bet its way too much work though. Hope its fun
    have a great day today, its hot and humid here too (CT)

  8. Oh, what beautiful work Debbie! I have no idea how to do ribbon embroidery, but your sachets look like a pro! I agree with others, you could make and sell these! We are having a very cool Labor Day here, such welcome weather after our hot dry summer! Enjoy the rest of the day :)

  9. Those are just gorgeous, Debbie! I can't even imagine how you do that, and the time you put into them! Beautiful! Blessings, Cindy

  10. Wow, oh wow, Debbie! Your ribbon work is just gorgeous! You truly are gifted:) What beautiful projects, I am so glad you rediscovered a lost love. Hope you find a local source for the ribbon, I will keep my eyes out for some for you, too!
    big hugs

  11. This is what inspiration is all about, you see something that speaks to you and before you know it your a pro !!
    They look beautiful, you need an etsy shop, I am certain they will fly out the door.

    debbie, I could see one done with your oatmill linen, and all done in Grey silk, ver Nordic and Jeanne d arc living.
    It would look like it jumped out of their magazines, and with everyone loving whites and greys these days it would be a sure sell with your lavender scenting.

    Just beautiful.
    Hope you had a beautiful visit with your guest, I am sure they wanted to shop right from your lake house :)


  12. Oh my! Looks great. You're doing a great job there lol.
    Have a nice Tuesday.
    Love Elzie

  13. Your embroidery is lovely. They are truly a work from the heart. Hot and humid here too. Sadly most of the sewing/crafting shops have closed around here and the big chains have mostly taken over. Hope you can find one close to you.

  14. Your work is incredible Debbie!!! It looks so tricky, I wouldn't even know where to begin. It's hard to find small craft/stitching shops anymore. We have Michael's and Hobby Lobby but that's pretty much it and I find Hobby Lobby can be outrageously expensive!

    Kyran went back to work yesterday (Labor Day) and it was grey and rainy all day so felt like just another Monday!

  15. Hi Debbie, Your ribbon work is just stunning. Love your sachets and the details are gorgeous. You are inspiring me to get out my books on this. I have been hoping to begin one day. I love to stitch and have done lots of creations but ribbon stitching has always been one I have not done but wanted to try so I purchased a few books.
    Thank you for sharing. Have fun and enjoy the process. You are one talented gal.
    Blessings, cm

  16. Very pretty Debbie. You are so talented. And patient. :-) Have a good week sweetie. xo

  17. Ohh... your sachets are so romantic! I love them in every single detail. You are very talented.

  18. These are so pretty Debbie. I am looking at the pretty sachet you sent me right now as I type. Love it so much. You have such wonderful talents.

  19. You've created a few dainty things already with the ribbon embroidery, have fun learning the intricate techniques of this specialty art.

  20. Oh that's so pretty Debbie and I imagine it takes quite a bit of patience ....the end result looks so vintage in style it's great !

  21. I think these sachets are just darling Debbie. I really enjoy silk ribbon embroidery and I think you have mastered these perfectly! Thank you for sharing them at Shabbilicious Friday. I'm delighted to be featuring them at tomorrow's party.
    Hugs ~ Kerryanne
