Iris Wearing Rubies Panel and Pattern
by Bev Tully Embroidery
The Iris Wearing Rubies Panel and Pattern includes both the Pattern and hand painted panel to complete a large, stunning bouquet of Ruby colored Iris’s, looking freshly picked from your garden.
This Iris Pattern combines the choice of completing the Iris Panel with specific thread and ribbon suggestions, instructions and illustrated placement of flowers, leaves and stems or could just be used more as a guide for the more experience stitcher who prefers a freehand embroidery style determined by your own creativity. This method of ribbon embroidery showcases the hand painted panel and gives real dimension to the piece. Far more effective than just embroidering over a pre-printed panel.
The Iris’s Wearing Rubies Panel and Pattern would be suited to both the experienced stitcher or a brave beginner with tuition!
