Default How to Make Ribbon Trim

I just saw this and think it is so pretty. Guess it wouldn't be too practical on a regular quilt but it would be so lovely on a crazy quilt. Would look nice on a tote bag or purse also.

Thank-you for sharing. Looks like a good project while listening to the T.V.

that is very pretty. I can see that as a trim on an evening bag. Thanks for sharing

That is really magical and explained so well by Kenneth King.

Would this be too much on a plain cardigan? It looks like it could be quite effective. I guess washing would be an issue. Thanks for sharing. Your very clever.

I think it would be pretty on a cardigan. I'd make sure the ribbon was washable and colorfast before I made the trim out of it. Be worth a try to see how it worked. Or sew it on by hand and just take it off before washing.

This is a useful and pretty trim. It would look lovely on so many items.
