wedding project: fabric ribbons

These ribbons are only if your wedding guests are the very best, like ours were. I started making them as a busy project a couple months beforehand. It was one of those instantly gratifying projects. I first got the idea when I made this ribbon for my ma. And my ma is always my inspiration.

I took some leftover fabric scraps from some other wedding decorations, and I made a million yo-yos. I then scrounged up some felt in coordinating colors, and glued on the extra bits. I attached a pin back to the back of the ribbon.

On wedding day, we put them all in berry baskets by the wedding programs. It made me very happy to see everyone wearing them!

a plaid christmas tree

Over the weekend, I started to panic when I realized that we didn’t really have any Christmas ornaments! So you know, I just whipped some up real quick like so the tree wouldn’t be naked.

I decided on a plaid Christmas tree. It says Christmas, but we could also use them as winter decorations later.

If you want to try to make your own, just draw a shape onto the fabric. I used some cookie cutters as patterns. I sandwiched the fabric with some batting and a little ribbon or twine, and then sewed on the outline. Then I took some pinking shears and cut out the shape. Tie a little bow or knot, and you’re done.

And because I can’t stop, won’t stop, I fashioned a plaid star for the tree topper too.plaid christmas 5

paper doll party

I love the idea of this paper doll clothes garland. Really, anything paper doll related has a special place in my heart. These would be super cute at a little girl birthday party…someday.
