Here is another Lavender Variety,
created by using simple
Ribbon Stitches and French Knots.
For the three flowers:
1 metre of each Cascade House
Silken Ribbon 4990 and 5300
30 cms. Green Silken Ribbon 7560
30 cms. of 7 mm Mauve
Step 1: Mark out a simple outline for the stems and
Chain Stitch using 3 strands DMC 647 Embroidery Thread
for the stem and then I have wrapped it with another
This gives it a slightly rounded and raised appearance.
Step 2: Fill the ovals with French Knots starting with the paler
Silken Ribbon scattered randomly and then add a few more in
the deeper Lavender Colour.
I try not to pull these as tight, so they
will sit above the others to create a layer effect.
Step 3: After completing the 3 Flower Heads add some
larger Wings at the tip with 7 mm. Mauve.
These can be varied from 1 - 3 Ribbon Stitches
some flat with others twisted to add to the appearance.
