Create a dimensional embroidery using ribbon, fabric, art yarn, beads and other materials using a technique called couching. In embroidery, couching and laid work are techniques in which yarn or other materials are laid across the surface of the ground fabric and fastened in place with small stitches of the same or a different yarn.
