At last my hand stitched sari ribbon piece is complete
See how it started here. Got a bit stuck with it 1/2 way through so took a photo of it, and printed it out in black and white. Then doodled on it one night with a pen repeating ideas of stitching and that became my pattern. (if you click on the pic below you can properly see the pen ideas drawn on the photocopy)
Will use this idea again if I become stuck.
