Iris Stitch

Iris Stich

 

  • Use 7mm (4") silk or organza ribbon.
  • Cut your working ribbon about 12-14" long.
  • Obviously you will need a wide eye needle.
  • Thread your needle and, to secure it, pierce the ribbon about 1/2" from the end and pull the needle through. This technique is used to prevent some of the bulk that this type of embroidery creates.

  • Avoid dragging your ribbon on the back of your fabric as the width of ribbon will allow it to show through your design.
  • To end your stitch, tie a slip knot on the back side of the fabric.
  • As shown in the video, the Iris stitch is done with Detached Chain/Buttonhole and Puffed Ribbon stitches. You can also use the French Knot, Lazy Daisy and Stem/Straight stitches to create your Irises.
  • Don't pull your ribbon too tight or you will lose the puffy effect.
  • Work with variegated ribbon for even more glamour.
  • Experiment with various widths of ribbons after you get the hang of working with the 4".
  • Go free form by tacking down flat, folded or puffed ribbon throughout your design.
  • Check that your ribbon is colorfast or wash it prior to stitching.
