Ribbon Projects

I just love ribbons. I think that if I were forced to choose between buttons or ribbons, life would just end up being too cruel. I just got a restock of ribbons yesterday, and there were few new colors and designs that are begging me to create something with them. I think my favorite of the bunch is Patty Young's, Kiwi Birdie Damask ribbon with a fresh punch of lime green and pink.

Two new ribbons from the talented Jessica Jones were added to my collection. If you have never stumbled onto Jessica's blog, How About Orange, it is worth your while to stop by. She is always posting all kinds of clever project ideas.

Oh, what you can do with ribbons! Here are a couple of projects ideas found on Patty Young's blog, Modkidboutique. Add a little ribbon trim for a snazzy camera strap, shown here from My Funky Camera.

... or jazz up those boring bath towels.

... add trim as a decorative accent to the legs of girls jeans, or use with paper crafts... oh, the possibilities are endless! Many of Patty Young's Andalucia's ribbon's can be found here or here. What do you like to create with your ribbons?

  6. Kay, this year we have a very light schedule. We will do one fall market this month and one "christmas" show the end of November. I'm really excited about the second show, even though it is rather small, because it is all handcrafted items, high quality work, low booth fees, and visitors who have an idea what handmade/one-of-a-kind means.
