Silk Ribbon in Basket Kit


This is a simple silk ribbon beginner kit that I've added to the RibbonSmyth website. We continue to receive requests for kits and I thought a kit with a hand-dyed Venise basket filled with silk ribbon flowers, would be great as a beginning piece. Only three silk ribbon stitches to complete the kit! Simply baste the basket to the fabric and then add the silk ribbon flowers, add a little sparkle with beads and finish with green cotton floss to give the basket a bit of dimension. And all the ingredients are included in the kit!
The key to beautiful silk ribbon stitches is...keep those stitches loose and always keep your straight stitches or Japanese Ribbon Stitches, short in length!
