This wheat bouquet was done using silk perle 12 for the stems, 4 mm hand dyed silk ribbon for the wheat heads and Krienik #4 gold braid for the embellishment on the wheat heads. Organza 3/8" ribbon was tied in a knot then tacked in place.

To do the wheat, first stitch your stems in stem stitch. Then , starting at the end of each stem, place a Japanese ribbon stitch. Alternate Japanese ribbon stitches down each side of the stems overlapping slightly and not having any line up directly across. Final step is one long stitch from the bottom of each Japanese ribbon stitch to about 1/8" past the end of the ribbon stitch in gold metallic #4 braid.
