Blog > Knitted bag with silk ribbon embroidery

  Hello stitching world ♫♬♪♫ Hope you are well and looking forward to the weekend.    To inspire you this weekend....   A hand-knitted African mohair and wool handbag with silk ribbon roses...   Click on the image to enlarge     This is one of the projects that I will be teaching in next year in New Zealand at Koala Conventions   In this workshop, I will teach you how to make life-like roses and a garden of flowers on a knitted background.   The bag, knitted-by-hand with African Mohair and wool is exclusively for the Koala workshops — my mother (the knitter) has said that she will make just enough for the class, and not one extra, as each background for the bag takes hours to knit :)   It is ready to embroider with silk ribbon and other interesting fibres which are all included in the kit. In this two-day workshop you will learn all the secrets of creating a successful masterpiece using silk ribbon embroidery techniques.           An ideal workshop for those who would love to create a stunning and unique handbag with silk ribbon, thread, wool, beads and other interesting fibres. For more information and to book your place, you are welcome to visit the Koala site here  OR if you would like to be advised as soon as the information is available, please email:  to ask about the Mohair Handbag workshop   Hope you enjoyed seeing this lovely piece and that all the knitters out there will be inspired to create with silk ribbon embroidery.   Have a lovely weekend and HAPPY stitching   Love   Di
