Ribbon Embroidery Designs & Stitches on block printing

Ribbon Embroidery Designs & Stitches – Marilyn Pipe

Ribbon embroidery and other designs can really spruce up your work. Embroidered fabric alone looks savvy and beautiful but adding a bit of ribbon can really bring out more colour and levels to your design. By adding ribbon, the design becomes more unique. It adds dimensions especially looking at it from a side-on perspective. In the example above, you can see how the ribbon-made rose adds a 3D effect to the design. It also makes the embroidery look sophisticated and special. You can really make it your own with the little details.

Marilyn Pipe really shows how the little details can bring a design to life. The white compliments the stitching and flower design. The contrast between the colours against the background fabric makes the design look vibrant. You can try this yourself on a number of things. Why not try to creating the rose effect on a pair of gloves?

The stitching really creates the overall design. You can do anything from flowers to music notes to a city skyline. The possibilities are endless. What we love about this particular design is how fresh and complicated it looks while still being very achievable.

How to use Lutradur – Industrial material for Textile Art

What is Lutradur? Introduction to textile techniques with Jamie Malden

Lutradur is a multifunctional fabric perfect for textile art. Being the sturdy material it is, it not only can be used to make beautiful landscape pieces but also when burnt can be made into little boxes. I love the idea that you can make pretty lamp shades out of the material. You can really be creative.

The sunset acrylic dyes really bring lutradur to life. Plus you can use it to compliment other fabrics by adding shaped versions of it. You can turn the fabric into much more than just a fabric. It can become your starting piece for elaborate art. It reads well into motifs and can be structured to create images. For instance, why not try making a flower pattern?

Also, you can use the material for textiled backgrounds. Amazingly, the lampshades come out super creative and fun. They speak for themselves, have a look:

Weaving

Weaving is an amazing method of textile production where two sets of yarns or threads are interlaced at right angles to form a fabric or cloth. In India the most popular materials used are cotton and silk. Weaving can be used to make so much – rugs, dresses or even blankets!
