3D Embellishing Tutorial - Ribbon

As you know I am somewhat completely obsessed with embellishing.   By that I mean 3D embellishing on art quilts, clothing, kids quilts or accessories.  

Riley Blake fabrics has this great website called Cutting Corners where they post tutorials on quilts, apparel, accessories and home decor.   It is great for ideas and free instructions to make things.  

I have made a couple of quilts for Cutting Corners.  I was chatting with one of the girls at Riley Blake and mentioned my obsession over embellishments.   From that conversation, I am now posting once a month on Cutting Corners showcasing a different embellishment and how to use it!  

For this month, I chose ribbon.   It is one of the most versatile embellishments ever and very under used.   I want to get quilters/crafters using this fabulous product.  

I show you how to make cute ribbon flowers and how to weave the ribbon into fantastic ideas.

Go and check out my tutorial.   (Feel free to leave a comment too=)
