Our "leftover fabrics" projects never end. That natural toned, wire mesh ribbon that we have been creating with, has traveled with us to Myrtle Beach, St. Marys, and Charlotte to inspire all those that saw first hand,just what we can do with that ribbon. Jen created hers by painting the ribbon Citron Green Lumiere and weaving complimentary fabric, ribbons, buttons and beads while I used the natural color and added rayon ribbons, mother of pearl buttons and a variety of frabjous fibers.
Christina Eckert from Wisconsin visited our shop in early April was inspired to create hers when she got home with beautiful blue silk ribbons, beads and fibers. Thank you Christina.
Then today, Susie Hursey came in and showed us what she has been doing . . .and it isn't a cuff. She saw the ribbon & she created ... a belt. You can she how she wove scrap dupioni silk fabrics & Renaissance Ribbons on the mesh ribbon that she dyed brown with rit dye. How deep and luscious is that brown? Susie is not quite finished with her belt as she plans to add several colorful embellishments from her own "robin's egg blue" collection at home.

    The cuffs are gorgeous - and a belt sounds really interesting!

    And I love those shoes on your previous post - the beading is wonderful!!
