Pin Cushion

 Hello Chaps!  Laura here with a pin cushion using the 'Stitches' ribbon...

I cut two triangles of white felt as my base.  To one triangle I added a band of sewing machine ribbon and tucked the ends behind.  To the other triangle I attached a length of lace around the edge.  Before joining both triangles together I added a loop of 'handmade with love' ribbon.

I hand stitched the two triangles together leaving a small gap to allow me to add stuffing.  I pack in some soft toy filling and closed the gap.

Thanks for looking!

Helmet bag with ribbon

Hello Ali here today.

I like to try and use ribbon when ever I can (no surprise there!!)

My niece was getting a new bike and my sister asked me to make a bag to keep her helmet in.

Umm, but could I make it to match her bike and helmet! (sisters for you)

After a little bit of thinking and a trip to the fabric shop to find the blue fabric, I started to play.
I used black grosgrain ribbon to enhance the design between the blue and black fabric. I also used it for the drawstrings.

Mollie decided that when her helmet was on her head, she could use the bag to carry Hugh her teddy!

Our grosgrain ribbons come in lots of different colours and can be found here
Have fun with ribbon

A Crafty Ribbons rag doll!

I would like to make a special doll with ribbons since a moment. It needs some time to have an idea and then turns it in real. It is almost as I want to. I used a lot of different sort of orange and yellow ribbons for hair. And flower buttons for eyes.

Here is she, on a patchwork I made some time ago.

I used a poppy field ribbon as kimono belt. It will be soon on the website. Isn't it beautiful?
She needs a name just now. An idea?

Enjoy your sunday,

Holiday Fund ~ Money Box

Hi Guys, Laura back today to share a money box made using an old dominoes box and the By The Sea ribbons.

First off I whittled a coin sized hole in the wood.  It was easy enough to do with a craft knife as the wood was very soft.  To prepare my wooden box to accept paint I used a watercolour ground.  Once that was dry I played around with some turquoise and brown watercolour paints, flicking and splattering until my desk was messy and my heart was happy!

I added some of the lighthouse ribbon to either side and wrapped some seaside ribbon around the box.  I added some hand lettering to the front and a few sequins for extra sparkle.

It's easy to get the money out as the front panel slides out.  I wonder if it will help with my savings..?

Thanks for stopping by!
