Complementary Shade of Fabric for back of ornament either in navy or plum.
Start by clicking on the button above to get the pdf of the Ribbon Heart Ornament. Print it, so that you can trace it onto tissue paper. Pin the tissue paper to the fabric that you want to use on the front of the Ornament. If you have a method of working on a dark background that you prefer, go for it.
Use a Running Stitch around the outside of the heart so that when the tissue paper is removed you can still see the edges of the heart.The Ribbon is done with Chain Stitch. The lines are Stem Stitch. The White dots are French Knots and the Leaves are Lazy Daisy Stitch. The Roses are made of Bullion Stitch. Bullion Stitch Roses take a little practice.
