Whether she's always been supportive of your decisions or once put her foot down against frosted tips or that septum ring, your mom has always had your best interests at heart. It would be a real shame not to show her some thanks (and some love) come Sunday morning. That doesn't just mean finding the best Mother's Day gift, either. It also means planning in advance to ensure she has a good Mother's Day.
Ribbons, with their eye-catching colors and designs, can accent a simple project and transform it into a special one. Alternatively, they can be folded, looped, sewn, and glued into chic and trendy accessories that stand on their own.
The projects are grouped into four main chapters: a beautiful collection of hair accessories and jewelry, some eye-catching gift wrapping ideas and presentation boxes, a wide range of floral designs and a wonderful gallery showing additional uses for your new ribbon creations.
Bedeck your tresses with sweet daisy hairpins, embellish your lapel with a boutonniere of felted thistles, drape your doorway with a pretty posy garland, and fall in love with the timeless yet modern art of making fabric flowers
I like to buy wool felt by the yard so I can work with large pieces at a time. It can be tricky to source 100% wool felt yardage, but you may be able to find wool blends at your local fabric store in a limited selection of colors. I buy my yardage online at woolfeltcentral.com. The ladies who run that site are wonderfully accommodating and helpful. Online auction sites and Etsy.com are other good places to start a search for good-quality felt yardage. Felt is my favorite material to work with because it’s so easy to sew, doesn’t unravel, and lends itself well to embelishment.
