Ribbon Embroidery Hijab

After a few years of working with bullion embroidery, using cotton DMC thread.. ermm I guess I should take a step forward by learning other embroidery techniques. So, I decided to start doing ribbon embroidery using silk ribbon. My first trial also on voile hijab (tudung bawal) .. tried to design something which can suits this kind of very soft fabrique and make a simple design that would be nice to wear as head cover. As usual, it is adorned with swarovski crystal beads.. well it seems like the finished material wouldnt be complete without some glittery stuff  .. so that it can be worn for formal occasions.


This is just 1 part of the finished embroidery

hi there :) smua jenis fabrics pon suitable as long as it is firmed enough to support the stitching... depends on whats your purpose la either cushion ke, or blankets .. the needles should be chosen suitable with fabrics and you can find it at this one shop that sells embroidery stuffs at ampang park. hope this helps :)
