Fluted Ribbon Flower | Video
Turn ribbon into a pretty textural trim, then transform the trim into a stunning blossom.
Couture embellishment expert Kenneth D. King demonstrates a method for sewing a floral adornment from ribbon. Each ribbon flower is made from a ribbon that has been tucked and stitched to form a fluted design; it is then stitched to a crinoline backing, which provides support. This simple hand-sewn project can be made at any scale from wide or narrow ribbon and is suitable for decorating garments or accessories, such as hats and bags.
