Every needlewoman in the house just have to have her work. And it’s not at all important what it is: an embroidered panel or a flower topiary - the main thing is that it inspires new masterpieces and gives positive emotions. I have such a find was one of my first works - flowers, embroidered with ribbons. For work, I used the following set of materials:
tapes of three colors 2.5 cm, one tape 0.5 cm;
embroidery frame;
scissors;
the usual sewing thread in harmony in color with ribbons;
a needle with a wide eye.
next set of materials

First of all, cut off from each (wide) tape a few segments of 25 centimeters. The edges are carefully melted with a cigarette lighter. This is done to ensure that in the process of embroidery and subsequent washing the edges, or rather the extreme threads, do not wear out and the flower does not melt in the hands. Then, we sew each piece with a simple thread using a usual basting stitch. For clarity, next to the already stitched ribbon scheme.

At one end we make a strong knot, and after the other, the remaining end of the thread gently pull and tie the ribbon into a flower.

Now, securely fasten the thread of the work done and attach (sew) the flower to the fabric in the chosen place.

The number of colors of a particular color depends entirely on you and your taste.

I decided that on my canvas there would be such a composition of ribbon flowers.

The work is almost ready. Now you can begin to fill the middle. Initially, I wanted to fill them with artificial stamens, which can be easily found on the counters of needle shops. But in the process, I changed my mind, giving my preference to the “French knot.” He does it like this. A thin tape is threaded into a needle.

Then, one of the ends is bent half a centimeter back twice.

With the edge of the needle we pierce the fold exactly in the center, and draw out the entire tape through the puncture until such a knot is obtained.

I prefer to leave the second end free (as with a basting), only melt the threads a little. It is best to do this at the bottom of the flame, so that the edge remains plastic, not plastic.
So, the knot. On the Internet, you can find many different nodes, but I liked this one. The thing is that it is very easy to perform, and it almost always turns out excellent even on the first attempt. From the center of the sewn flower we pull out the ribbon.

Then we apply the needle to the tape closer to the base and several times turn it around.

Now we make a puncture of the tissue with the needle down, next to the place where it came to the top. Carefully, gently pressing a finger, we deduce all tape on seamy side. On the front side there should be such a small bundle.

We make similar nodules in all flowers.
