Mini bag

Made this small bag for my sister in Perth. Hope she will like it. I use ribbon stitch, straight stitch and french knot for this project with 3 colors combination.

RE on cards

I tried doing RE on cards before. In my opinion it is easier to do it on cards than fabric. But you can't make a mistake on cards or you will get card with holes :)

First work

I first encounter with ribbon embroidery in January 2008 through a website and I really adore the beautiful works. Then i started searching the techniques use and patterns. My sister bought me a starter kit and a book and I learned a lot from there. My first ever work is a cushion cover and I finished it within a week.
