Here is the second attempt with pink ribbon and a trio of the cream bottons from the above dollar top! I think I already got my dollars worth and have not even cut up the fabric yet!! LOL
Last is a WIP, I am combining both colors of ribbon. I am not very happy with this ribbon as it is not the soft satin that I had hoped for (and thought I was getting) I guess the plastic wrap on it fooled me. This is not as shiny nor as soft and drapey as I had planned. I think it will work much better with a different type of ribbon. I love the idea so plan to continue to perfect this plan and work it out with other ribbon. The goodwill trip had other goodies a white wool blazer that has been felted, new jeans a size smaller (!!!) and a gorgeous silk blouse in irridescent silk, plus two skirts made of linen fabric, one pink and one aqua. Will share pictures when they are cleaned up, right now they are banned to the laundry room and the jacket is in the process of being deconstructed!
On the home front it has rained here since early AM nonstop, one of the tall thin pines in the back yard fell over toward the house, missing the laundry room window pane by an inch when it hit the side of the house. I am so glad I was gone when it happened, I can't imagine the sound when it hit the ground. Of course add this to DD's car needing a $1000 repair to a front wheel and mine getting a full set of new tires........can you say it has been a long day??? Hope yours was wonderful!
