I recently acquired a large bag of Victorian ribbon tradesman samples and was over the moon. There are quite a few ribbon samples that have wonderful designs although many of them are plain colours, but the silk is divine.
Five out of the six photo's above show the beautifully designed silk ribbon samples
These are perfect for period projects but I will be framing some and you may like to do this as well.
As the ribbon is silk it shines different shades with movement and is so pleasing.
This ribbon is perfect and in excellent condition.
The weather is getting colder and already wet here in Morecambe. Time to start all of those wonderful Christmas gifts you have been thinking about. The Christmas fairs will soon be upon us and you will need lots of lovely handmade items to display and sell.
Today lists lovely vintage buttons in the traditional colours of red and green. Match them with vintage fabrics for the splendid projects you have in mind.
