The perfect blush silk cloth can be created using just a few simple steps.
It’s a beautiful addition to any room, and you can even use it for special occasions.1.
Find the right fabric to start with.
Silk fabrics tend to be heavier and more stretchy than cotton fabrics, so you’ll want to find a silk fabric that is a good match for your desired shade of blush.
A good choice for blush silk is a medium silk fabric.
The lightest silk fabric can make the perfect blush.2.
Measure the fabric.
To determine how much fabric you’ll need, measure the length of the fabric you’re going to be using.
For example, if you plan on using an oversized size, measure 3.5 inches from the top edge of the hem to the bottom edge of your fabric.3.
Cut the fabric in half.
To create the blush silk, cut the fabric into quarters and place them on top of each other.
For this tutorial, I used an 8-inch-long quarter-round.4.
Thread the fabric to your desired length.
For a larger-diameter fabric, you’ll use a small needle to thread the fabric together, but you can use a double needle or even just a flathead screwdriver.5.
Thread a ribbon.
To attach the fabric ribbon, attach a knot to the end of the ribbon.6.
Place the ribbon in the back of the embroidery machine.
For an embroidering machine that makes a loop, you can either use a crochet hook, a string, or a hair tie.7.
Create the silk fabric projects.
To begin, simply thread the silk into the machine.
You’ll need to sew two lines of silk along the fabric, and then stitch them together.8.
Attach the ribbon and ribbon loop to the fabric with a loop of string.
Thread your ribbon into the loop of the silk and attach it to the embroiderer’s hook with a knot.9.
Sew the ribbon to the silk.
Sewing your ribbon takes a lot of time, so be sure to plan a time when you can do it for free.

Hang the fabric for the best results.
After the ribbon is attached to the garment, you’re ready to hang the fabric and make it your own.
Here’s how to do it:1.
Take a few strips of fabric, which can be up to 10 inches long, and wrap around the back and side of the machine, creating a “bouncey” effect.2 (Optional) Wrap the fabric around the front and back of your garment, creating the “snowball effect.”3 (Optional, but highly recommended) Take a long piece of string and sew it around the top and bottom of the garment.4 (Optional and very recommended) Wrap a ribbon around the fabric of the back, creating an “sneaky” effect in the middle of the “bouncing effect.”5.
Attached to the ribbon loop are a series of loops that can be used to hang your fabric to a wall or hang the ribbon on a door.6 (Optional but highly recommend) To make a more complicated flower arrangement, tie a ribbon to a piece of fabric that you’ve chosen and hang the flowers over the fabric at the top of the flower.7 (Optional with some fabric designs) To hang a ribbon on the front of your embroiderie machine, attach the ribbon ribbon loop through the center of the cloth and tie it in place with a few threads.8 (Optional only for some fabrics, but it adds a nice touch to a simple flower arrangement.)9.
Hang your ribbon from the back in the same way you would any other ribbon.
You can also hang your ribbon over a piece the size of a credit card, using the ribbon loops as loops.10 (Optional for some fabric patterns, but may make your embroidered garments look more professional.)
