Welcome in Spring!Okay…. maybe NOT just yet…blizzard conditions here in MT yesterday. Nevertheless… the time is to sew for it is now! Soon it will be here, (truly!) and y’all will be wanting to be out in yards, gardens, and smelling that new grass! So it’s more than a couple months off here in Montana… but why not DREAM BIG?! Yeah, Baby!
And it feels good to have a small project done… set of two doncha know!
a bit of rayon ribbon,
silver metallic thread…
beautiful batik fabrics…
finished quick as a bunny with fused steam a seam binding…
cut with a wave-edge rotary cutter!
Gotta have a pretty thread, too! Mine was a pretty pink pastel tri-lobal from Superior threads.
I sure enjoyed placing the silver metallic thread (YLI candlelight in silver) easily centered all around the outside edge! Used that sweet little Bernina #39 Foot See the ‘how-to’s in an earlier post here!
Gotta love just a bit of free motion… the flower motifs provided instant inspiration… EASY BREEZY
free motion girls!
Notice too, just a bit more of silver metallic thread on the outside edge of the ribbon… love that little red guide on my #39 foot! Did you see the project I posted here… pick-up stix glitz? Check it out!
For more inspiration… see the blog of Bon Bon Aelier here! They just featured yesterday, a wonderful store in London, called “V V Rouleaux” that is amazing… a store that has … nothing… but …. ribbons… and more ribbons, trims… embellishments. See their blog spot here. I want to go!
