The Simple Art of Ribbon Design
This guide begins with a detailed survey of soft, sensual, luxurious ribbons from around the world - silks, satins, and synthetics available in a wider range of colors, textures, and sizes than ever before. After basic preparatory steps are reviewed, such as laundering, pressing, steaming, and hand-dyeing ribbons, the heart of the book unfolds - a flower guide to ribbon design, with sequenced steps for creating rose, pansy, poppy, peony, daisy, and leaf patterns, plus ribbon tassels, cords, and fringes as adornments for vests, hats, wreaths, pillows, and other items.
