Snow Mates.

Posted on | September 30, 2012 | 11 Comments

I have completed the little wall hanging that was well under way last week. It has grown from this…


To this ………


I had wanted to play with different colours to see how they worked.

The original has been done with white ribbons for theĀ  snowmen on a natural linen. That one is now at the LQS (Sewing Connection) as a sample, along with the patterns for the project.

The only thingĀ  I am missing for the blue snow-mates is a little bird button. I will have to track down another one of these.

I have really enjoyed the huge selection of ribbons available to make these, but have struggled to find a reasonable selection of white buttons. The majority of small white buttons are mostly the transparent type. I am after the solid colour that really does look white. That search will have to continue.

The Snow-mates pattern has used a lot of the techniques from the Ribbon Tree pattern from last year.

And of course I had to play with different colours for that one, too.

There are now ideas running around inside my head about some small decorations using the ribbons. I will let you know if they work and will be happy to share them.
