Basic Ribbon Embroidery

Folded Rose is fundamental in ribbon embroidery. As name given, it takes a lot of folding process and of course, practices in order to make one. It can be beautiful on its own or can be combined with other ribbon embroidering techniques, to form various roses designs of larger sizes.

The length of ribbon required to form a folded rose depends on the size of ribbon used. The general rule - the larger the size, the longer is needed to form a folded rose. For example, our normal practice would require a length of 30" for a ribbon size on 1". However, it is possible to have different formula by individual experience and practices.
