Lobelia Corsage- ribbon work flower pin

Lobelia Corsage

Lobelia Corsage

I have long admired Candace Kling’s work, and I often peruse through her book The Artful Ribbon it is such a beautiful book, and it makes me happy just looking through it.

The flower here is of my own design, similar to the Cloche Rose,but made from silk ribbon rather than French wire. The leaf is from an article that Candace wrote for PieceWork Magazine July/August 1997 (which is no longer in print), but you may find something similar in vintage millinery books.

The flower is made from my selection of Hanah Silk Ribbon and the leaf from Grosgrain Ribbon.

Happy stitching, and enjoy your creative adventures! Christen
