Review: In this volume Victoria Adams Brown moves beyond the realm of The Complete Guide to Silk Ribbon Embroidery to incorporate a number of media to enhance her ribbon embroidery. Brown aims for a broad audience that includes quilters, dollmakers, fabric painters, miniaturists, knitters, and crocheters who seek new ways to embellish their work. She employs rubber stamping, stenciling, watercolors, silk painting, and polymer clay adornments to produce good-looking projects that range from wearables to wall hangings. There are clear, concise, step-by-step directions for stitching various animals and flowers, as well as thorough coverage of techniques such as making your own silk ribbon, ribbon dyeing and painting methods, and even burning ribbon into unusual shapes.
