1. Select a quality ribbon. Always buy a strip that is well-designed, wears a good color and is recommended by the sample. A pure silk ribbon is often a preferred preferred ribbon, but other types of quality ribbon are available, including a range, satin, etc. A low-cost ribbon from shopping malls may not be long-term economical; their fabric content may be questionable and color may be bleeding if it becomes damp.
2. Use a proper needle. The chenille or ribbonstry needle is the right needle to embroider on the ribbon. A large eye in each of these needles will make a larger hole in the fabric, which will make it easier for the ribbon to pass and less wear the ribbon.
3. Working with short ribbon lengths. The ribbon tends to break, so it is better to work with it in shorter lenghts, so it is not too common to pass through the fabric. A good length is 30 centimeters long. This will ensure an adequate length of work without causing a mystery.
4. Do not hold the thread or ribbon too tightly. Work with a slight tension on the embroidery of the ribbon. This will help you keep the shape of your seams and will not pull the ribbon out of the shape that could threaten.
5. Use a suitable thread. The embedded thread is usually suitable for ribbon work, and it should also be oriented with the proposed sample thread.
6. Run each length of the ribbon by leaving a small tail about 1 cm long 3/8 "on the back of your work. Re-conclude with the same number on the back side each time. The thin knot thread through them from one end to the other or by placing The sewing stitches for the rest of the work are sewing through them. This will keep them in place without leaving the knock under their work.
7. Avoid twisting the ribbon during work. Do this by making each stitch on the fabric and holding it with your fingers while pulling the strap.
Always keep your hands clean when embroidered; regularly wipe the sweaty hand on the hand towel.
