Welcome to the first Day of the Ribbon Tour by Bonnie Christine!
My name is Edith and I am the happy owner of Renaissance Ribbons ! I can tell you the joy it has been to work with Bonnie and to set her charming designs into woven little treasures- yes our ribbons are all woven, not printed. In her own words, Bonnie's delightful ribbons are inspired by a love for nature and sunshine, and playing with them makes you smile!
Then comes the question : what to do with the ribbons, I hope this tour combined with your own creativity will inspire a lot of fun using your stash or creating it...
One of my textile passion is creative stitching on wool, my teacher and great inspiration is Sue Spargo and her unique style. I took some fabrics from the winged collection and created a small applique pillow 7"by 12". I cut out some of the wings patterns from the fabric and appliqued them on wool, creating layers and adding creative stitches with all types of wonderful threads all around giving dimension and movement to the butterflies...
