On and on. Be inspired. Milliners Needle A milliners needle is like a sharp but instead is long and very thin with a very small eye so it will slide through the ribbon, leaving no hole. Size #10 makes quick work for gathering and going through thick chunks of ribbon. Other suitable sizes are #9 and #11. Most seed beads will fit over #10 and #11 needles, therefore avoiding the need to switch to a beading needle when adding beads to a ribbon flower center. Beading Thread Use twisted beading thread instead of ordinary sewing thread because it’s thin, strong, and will gather the ribbon tightly without breaking.
Tie a knot in the center of each piece of ribbon. Take a knotted ribbon and fold it into a loop. Using 36" of doubled thread, secure the thread with several backstitches into the overlapped base of the ribbon loop, so the thread doesn’t pull out. Take a second knotted ribbon from another pile and fold it into a loop. Sew the base of that petal with two tiny running stitches, sliding it next to the first petal. Repeat these steps until you have sewn one of each of the nine different ribbons onto the thread.
To begin a running stitch, secure your thread into the ribbon with a few backstitches and proceed with fairly even running stitches. Take at least three or four stitches at one time before pulling the thread through the ribbon—the milliners needles are made to do this! You can stitch very close to the bottom edge of the ribbon if it has a woven edge. Stitch " from the bottom edge of the ribbon if it is a raw edge or a bias-cut edge ribbon. Stab Stitch The stab stitch is used when sewing the flowers and leaves to the crinoline or background fabric.
