This gives you lots of opportunities to enjoy making beautiful things for your self, as gift as well. The best description of our Mary Engelbreit ribbons is that it is Happiness on a roll!
If you are a maker, we have a few projects to inspire you too! It is a great fun to stitch ribbons together and create a fabric that way. See below 2 examples of FREE Pattern we share with you and you can make from you new stash of Ribbons
Charming versatile little pouch to carry your essentials, phone and keys and more, it makes a wonderful gift too
We create a fabric by stitching ribbons next to each other- with a zigzag stitch. We stitch them on top a piece of Stabilizer Pellon fusible 808 . You can be very creative and also stitch them straight or in diagonal if you prefer.
2. Origami Coin Purse, we designed it and were lucky to have our Friends at Sew4Home create a full photo tutorial with the pattern to download
- 4 sets of keyfob hardware 1¼”
- 2 yd of Heavyweight Cotton Webbing Red and Black 11/4"wide
- Flyer with instructions
For a small key fob, you can cut at 6 or 7 inches. For longer ones 9 to 10 inches
To sew the ribbon straight on the webbing, you can use a narrow strip of wonder tape ( double fusible tape) applied on the center of the back of the ribbon, peel it and and position in place. That helps setting the ribbon in the middle!
2 large Heart woven patches with iron on backing
Step 1: Set your iron at the hottest temperature setting. Don't use steam! Step 2: Place your patch in the desired position and place a pressing cloth if you're concerned about burning it over top. Step 3: Press the iron straight down for 35-45 seconds with as much constant pressure as possible. Try not to move it back and forth, you just want to apply heat. Step 4: Turn the project inside-out and repeat steps 2 & 3. Step 5: Allow the patch to cool down.
Step 6 Share your finished project with us on Social Media IG and FB
Wonderful evocation of the Happy World that Mary invite us to live in.
