Gifts or too Gaudy?
I'm looking for some feedback. I recently went to a great yard sale where the seller was getting rid of lots of trim and material from her defunct business of selling children's clothing. My most useful acquisition was a full bolt of fusible interfacing for $10. I couldn't resist some of the trimmings though because they were so cheap and so cute! I picked up several yards of a pleated rainbow ribbon ($1), some lace and other embroidered ribbons.
Then I saw some homemade headband tutorials while reading craft sites and decided to give it a shot. Here are the results:
I would like to do the same thing with some ladybug ribbon but the embroidered threads kept sticking out. Any suggestions on how to contain these? Fray check?
