A bling bling purse

 I weave them irregularly on a  thermo-gluing viesline (sorry about my english) .

I iron with a damp cloth and cut to a rectangle of 23x26cm.

Some machine embroidery lines later, there is my flat  bling bling purse!

With a ladybug zip! Good for Challenge this week HERE...

Good to range my bling ribbons!
Enjoy your week-end and don't forget to craft...

Elsa's dress finished

Morning to all my Friday visitors.
Time to show you the dress I made my niece Mollie.
She feel in love with Elsa's dress in the movie Frozen

Well what do you think?

I wanted to add more silver snowflakes, but Mollie was impatient to wear it for her secret party….
…..which turned out to be a Tea party for me!!!


The train (cape) was just what Mollie had wanted, I have so many pictures of her looking backwards at it,
that I became concerned she was going to fall over!
I painted the snowflakes on with silver glitter.


You can read more about the dress here .

We are in the process of updating our website, it is starting to look different.

Ribbon Bodice for Elsa's dress from Frozen

Morning everyone - for those of you that do not follow my blog I am making Elsa's Dress from the movie Frozen. Part one here .
Mollie is my niece, she is 5 and knows how to twist me around her finger!
She sooooo wanted an Elsa dress, that I said yes.
The key to the dress was the bodice, and to me that was the easy bit!
It looked just like ribbon weaving – well sort of……
…..and the only ribbon to use would be “BLING” here
I used Silver and Tropic colours
For step by step instructions click here  
I am sharing the dress tomorrow and Friday here.

Hi Guys, it's Laura here today to share a mini canvas I have made.

When I work with ribbon I always save the little snippets I trim off the ends.  They are the perfect medium to add texture to a canvas.

This canvas measures just 74mm by 56mm.  So there you go - a use for your off cuts of Crafty Ribbon ribbons!

There are more photos and a how to on my blog.

Note Block with Birds

Hi Guys!  Laura here today.

I found this kraft note block hanging around and thought I'd jazz it up with the bird ribbon from the Vintage range.

It's a really simple makeover, but as the ribbon goes so well with the brown of the kraft I didn't think I could do anything else to make it better!  Sometimes simple is all it needs!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
