One Christmas Gift - DONE!

Many, many years ago I made woven ribbon pillows for friends as Christmas gifts. This year our Bunco group will be exchanging gifts and I decided to resurrect this idea.

I cut the ribbons into 12" lengths, weave them and pin them into place
I chose an assortment of ribbons, not necessarily Christmas, but a bit glitzy for the holiday season:
The ribbons are pinned onto a scrap of fabric so that I can stitch around the outside edge, holding them in place:
I chose a back that had similar colors as the ribbons:
I also hand stitched a ribbon fringe around the edges:
A special gift for one of my Bunco friends! One present completed, many more to go!
Sharing this with Met Monday and Tutorial Tuesday

  6. How pretty. I made a few ribbon weave pillows years ago after seeing Martha make them. Also did a piece for a tray (under glass) in the guest room. Still have that one.
