1/16″ and 1/8″ Ribbons are wonderful to use in the decorative stitches. They cover the canvas on those straight stitches, giving you many more stitches to use. We love them in hills, in a bargello stitch, or for a border, in a multi-layered stitch. You can also couch 1/16″ and 1/8″ Ribbons on any fabric for surface embellishment work. HINT: To look their best you must lay these threads flat. This is easy, but use a laying tool, your needle, or your finger for extra control.
