Luis Nunez

The Initial Bloom

As Luis states:
"This design is an exploration of ribbon embroidery techniques and canvas embroidery to create script initials.  Together we will explore a myriad of ribbon techniques such as Japanese ribbon stitch, Tacked ribbon loops, Satin Stitch, French Knots,  Colonial Knots and Cast-on Bullion knots using 4 mm and 7 mm silk, 1/16" metallic ribbon, stranded silks and metallic braid.
Even though we are using the same flower groupings, each letter will be unique unto itself.  Once the techniques have been taught, I encourage you to personalize your design by placing the flower groupings as you wish."

Choose one initial letter for this beautiful project.  Ecru canvas on 18 ct.

Examples of some of the thread and ribbon embroidery and techniques you will learn are shown below. 


  




Two beautifully stitched examples of other initials.
  The initial "R" was stitched by Ricky Klein and the "N" by LaQuieta O'Dell.
