1.Ribbon Chevron Pouch
This project is a Renaissance Ribbons project and we have a FREE PDF tutorial
Sewing ribbons together with a zig zag stitch and an invisible thread create a really fun fabric and texture , log cabin style patchwork. The ribbons are stitched to the shiny side of a layer of fusible interfacing. When all the ribbons are stitched, you can press, it activates the fusing and creates a tight, smooth bond.
1.Crazy Patchwork cushion cover
Lovely project that mixes some machine sewing, hand embroidery and crazy patchwork ideas
For supplies, apart from the ribbons, you need:
- wool in a variety of shades of blues and one piece coral for the fabric background and to make the little circles- all my supplies from Sue Spargo Wool
- some embroidery threads- Sue Spargo embellishment threads
- fabric of your choice for the back (a fat quarter is enough)
- 1 14” zipper if you want to add the zipper, see here on how to easily machine stitch a zipper on a pillow insert ( I found that tutorial really useful! give it a try if you are still a bit afraid of zippers on pillow covers!- otherwise you can also make an envelope pillow cover- for that see a video tutorial here
- Pillow form 12’ by 16”,, we got ours from Amazon
Making the pillow.
feel free to inspire yourself from our pillow (it was originally made by Sue Spargo, with different ribbons and I reconstructed it for this exact selection of ribbons.
Take a piece of paper and draw the different pieces to prepare, be creative and make it your own
Plan ahead and stitch the ribbons on the wool before assembling the pieces
