About Me

Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. I love reading them all. xxxx

Twisted Ribbon Flower Tutorial

Easy flowers to make from ribbon.
I did a swap on Facebook and received this ribbon flower amongst it.
I asked if she had made it but it was from a shop.
It was so pretty I decided to have go.

I used Grosgrain ribbon but have also made with Satin and Organza too.

You will need 6 pieces of ribbon about 7cm x 4cm

Twist over 180 degrees.  My ribbon was the same on both sides but looks good if it isn't.
(See spotty one below)

Stitch with a quick running stitch (you dont have to be neat) along the raw edges.

                                     I have a long needle so I can fit all 6 pieces on together.

Join to make them into a circle.

Fluff about so they look even.

This is done exactly the same but use slightly longer pieces and without twisting, just put raw edges together and sew together as before.

This looks good with just a centre added too.

Add any type of centre, gems, pearls etc.

Here is the spotty one and the spots are only on one side of the ribbon but still looks good.

Hope you enjoyed.
