As a jacquard woven ribbon company for more than 30 years, we had a great opportunity to handle many kind of ribbons, they are typically used as an embellishment, but we also discover new ways to sew with ribbons and one of the way is to create your own fabric with ribbons!
RIBBON ART. A variety of effects can be created simply by sewing the ribbons together at different angles and in varying lengths. It's a kind of patch working or piecing together of these lovely woven ribbons.
We're very excited to show you what we've been doing with our ribbons and will be creating new kits to inspire you to make all sorts of eye-catching projects. To date we've offered the successful Chevron Pouch kits in several ribbon and fabric combinations. The Chevron Pouch kit requires careful measuring of the ribbons and piecing to get the right placement for best effect. For simpler sewing you can also place ribbons horizontally or vertically, or diagonally (**see our projects**) but what we're most delighted by is the block patchwork technique where any length or width of ribbon is pieced together usually at right angles to create a new piece of 'fabric'.
That is the way it starts:
This is a more organic way of making a pattern and the results can be spectacular (**see our projects***). For any of the above methods you use a zig-zag stitch with invisible thread sewing onto a base of Pellon 808 Craft Fuse. You can be as simple or complex as you wish with your pattern making and enjoy the satisfaction of creating something entirely new which is why we call it Ribbon Art.
And that is how it ends... for a small fun project!
These vintage ribbons are absolutely beautiful! The photos don’t give them justice. I plan on making a crossbody sling bag and am using Moda grunge fabrics for my backing. The grunge fabric is a perfect platform for these ribbons to to the subtle, colors. Can’t wait to make it!!
I just ordered this Ribbon for the 3rd time. This ribbon can be used in so many different projects. Has lots of color and a good width and the quality is great. I get so many compliments about the Renaissance ribbons I use.
I bought some other webbing from a major retail fabric store and it was relatively loose and flimsy. This webbing is stiff, feels substantial and stitches like a dream on my machine! Highly recommend.
I received a monthly bag kit from Renaissance Ribbons each month for the last 8 months or so. I also had three months of the black and white. I just love each bag. Once I got the zipper facing the right direction, they went together well. I am so pleased. I am giving the bags away as Christmas gifts. I have a lot of granddaughters.
These bag kits are beautiful! The directions and instructional video are well done. I can't wait to see the next kit's contents of fabric and ribbons! They will make gorgeous Christmas gifts.
They were amazing!!
My first project incorporating Tula Pink fabric and Renaissance Ribbons and I am loving the color palette and designs. There are so many possible project ideas for which this pack can be used! I am making a pop-up storage bin for my 12 year old granddaughter's room. She loves animals, visiting the zoo, and wants to be a vet!
Serious quality ribbon that matches the fabric. It will be perfect on the bag I’m making! I love this company as they make everything they do perfect!
Order came quickly. Nicely wrapped with special touches.
Always good quality as usual!
Haven't used yet but my expectations have been met. Very Cute Cats.
This webbing is great quality. Will work great for my next project.
Kit arrive well packaged and when I opened it, the fabric and ribbon were stunning! So pretty, I ordered more ribbon on the spot. I'm sure I'll be ordering more in the future.
The kit was wonderful. Using the Tula fabric was cheerful. . The Annie pattern was great. I made 3 more bags with velvet ribbon and adjusted the size after I made the initial bag. Having the add on videos was helpful. Great project!
Loving this kit club! The kit contained all the needed supplies which makes it super convenient to make without searching for the right size zipper or interface. The ribbons are gorgeous and enhances the pouch so much!
So enjoy receiving my lovely ribbons and Pretty fabrics from Tula. What a fun and easy project with great instructions from by Annie. Plus we got a thank you gift to make a key fob and I have ordered more ribbon to make more of the cute key fobs. Thanks Edith for a winning combination. Looking forward to the next three kits!!!!
