Layered Floral Embroidery
Intermediate | 45 min 36 sec
Combine bright floral patterns and vintage embroidery to create a fabric collage bursting with texture and pattern. Rebecca shows how to create a loose, freeform style of embroidery where more is more. She demonstrates how to blend different fabric prints as a base, then add vintage trims and embroideries – and she teaches several floral stitch patterns that add density and dimension. Once you’re finished embroidering, hang your finished collage on a wall or incorporate it into a sewing project such as a pillow or bag that needs some cheer.
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • Small piece of linen or cotton fabric
  • collection of densely patterned colorful fabric scraps
  • collection of found embroidery (from old pillow cases, tablecloths, napkins etc.)
  • found floral trims
  • fabric sheers
  • embroidery scissors
  • embroidery hoop
  • 6 strand embroidery floss
  • size 8 pearl cotton
  • embroidery needles
  • millinery needles
  • tapestry needles
  • safety pins
  • straight glass head pins
Learn how to:
  • Work with different scale prints
  • Incorporate vintage embroidery
  • Use three-dimensional floral stitches

What you’ll get:
  • An easy-to-follow lesson on how to make layered floral embroidery
  • 11 HD video lessons you can access online anytime, anywhere
  • Detailed supply list
  • Step-by-step expert instruction by artist Rebecca Ringquist

Absolutely LOVE Rebecca, her style, her teaching style, and the "newness" she brings to embroidery! She explains demonstrates ALL of the stitches so well! Making retro finds so fresh and new is THE BEST! Thank you, Rebacca!

Great demo and explanation. Photography could be sharper and closer. Fingers sometimes block the view.
