This is a small spray made with the 7mm RibbonSmyth silk ribbon "Purple Please" combo pack. The base is an assortment of doupioni silk pieces and on top of that, I've tacked down a piece of a vintage lingerie lace collar. In the center of that I added a RibbonRuffles Spider Web Rose in the Wild Iris colorway. Use that #13 needle for wide fibers. I filled in around the rose with 7mm silk ribbon loop stitches. Add a bead in the center of each loop to create a great little flower. Use our lilac/mauve/celery velvet leaves tacked beneath the silk ribbon. Add a couple of beads on top of each leaf. I finished with some of our RibbonSmyth silk buttonhole twist and made a few feather stitches. Love those Jewel Tones!
