One of my favorite suppliers is B'Sue Boutiques and not just for her gorgeous goodies but also her generous spirit. This lady is high energy and encourages interaction with her customers. She is also a great teacher and posts teaching videos on You Tube. So, not surprisingly, she is sponsoring a blog hop and here lies the challenge: Sari Ribbon.
It's gorgeous stuff made from the material that women from India wrap around their bodies. It is silky and colorful and...and...and...raveling. In fact, that's its main draw...the fibers unraveling all around the ribbon. It's enough to make a person who loves symmetrical design cringe.
The whole experience brought forth memories of the time I took Singer sewing classes. I was the only "civilian" in a class of retired nuns. While they were sewing inset pockets, I was ripping out my zipper so many times that the fabric started to unravel. Oh, the horror! It was my first...and last...attempt at sewing. So, to take on this challenge was an exercise in stepping out of my boundaries. All in all, I like my simple little project. It is wearable and lightweight. There is cheerful color and a bit of sparkle. It has symmetry and the "ravels" are under control. ' Hope you like it too. Thanks for stopping by.
