Ribbonwork

Look what I learned today: flowers with ribbons! My friend Dora showed me how to make them this afternoon, while I was taking a break from hand quilting. When I got home and looked in my favorite ribbonwork book - Ribbonwork, The Complete Guide by Helen Gibb (I found it here), I learned how to make the leaves. For the large petals I used satin blanket binding since I did not have many ribbons available. For the smaller petals, I used grosgrain ribbon, and for the middle of the flower I used ric rac. The leaves were made using 1 1/2" wire ribbon. We can use these to embellish so many things! How do you like it? Do you know of any other books or DVDs that teach ribbonwork? Let me know...
