Here is my make for the DT ribbon challenge:
I used Creative Expressions Grosgrain Ribbon in Pink and White Stripes and Creative Expressions Grograin Ribbon in Black and Ivory Stripe.
The ribbons were woven and attached to a sturdy piece of nylon felt; soft wool felt is not suitable for this project. If you wish to use a piece of fabric instead you may do so; I used the felt because it gives the bag a nice padded base to attach the ribbons to. The ribbons were attached using a hot glue gun and then sewn on to a backing for the bag. A tutorial will follow next week for step by step instructions.
The flower was made by attaching twisted ribbon to a small round of felt and glueing the ribbon in place with a hot glue gun. Add a rhinestone, pearl or whatever you fancy, to your flower.
Be sure to purchase 2 full rolls of ribbon. This bag measures approximately 6 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches but you would be able to get a much larger bag from the two rolls, each has 5 yds.
Hope you like it and enjoy the blog hop. Your next blog in the hop is Trace Metcalfe
