    I have just discovered MayArts Ribbons because of a sales offer from one of my wholesalers. I got one kind of ribbon that has diamond stitched pattern and I just love it! Then I found the website and now I'm hooked! This great idea to make your own fabric using May Arts Ribbons is just wonderful and I will link to it from my own page here at Facebook! 🙂

    Kendra, what a delightful video!  My sewing machine is collecting dust in our basement, but after watching how easy this project is to put together, me thinks it's time to bring my machine out of retirement!  And now that I have TWO little grandchildren to create for, what a FUN memory game idea.  LOVE that big ring pull zipper!  Sweet project!
