May Arts Ribbon Blog

Everywhere I look I am seeing scarves.  It seems that the season doesn’t really
matter. Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall…they are in fashion.  However, right now for me-scarves are not
only about fashion they are about function.
It is cold. Taking some of my favorite ribbons I incorporated them into
cozy comfy scarves.

    Love the scarves. The ribbons really dress up a plain scarf. The red and white ribbon would be fun for a Christmas scarf or wrap.
