Style Traditional

What materials did you use? Mostly large silk ribbons. I also used a variety of other ribbons to add texture.

What are you most proud of? That I managed to find a creative way of dealing with the gaps between the ribbons and one unwanted pucker that actually ended up embellishing the piece.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I incorporated 3 or 4 strips of batik fabric in the piece that is the same fabric that was used in the border to ensure it would all coordinate together. You may want to do the same. Make certain that you do not put the same 2 ribbons beside each other. Also, because you are weaving the ribbons, you may want to not duplicate the ribbons used in the horizontal and vertical rows. There is a lot of stitching in this project. Be patient, it will all be worth it in the end.
