Challenge Results – Ribbon and Remnants

Ready to see what I came up with for the Ribbon and Remnant Challenge?  Hosted by Janine from Sarah Lauren Ribbons and Sasha from Fabric Fusion, ten bloggers were sent packs of assorted ribbons, trims and fabrics and had 6 weeks to come up with whatever took their fancy. I spoke about using creative challenges in this post here as a good way to push your own boundaries and come up with new ways of thinking.

This is what I started with…


And this is what I’ve made…

All ready for Christmas!  I’ve never owned an advent calendar before so this will make a nice addition to the decorations this year. Still not sure what I’m going to fill it with – whatever it is it has to satisfy 3 rowdy boys so I’ll let you know how it goes.

Something like this would go well at Christmas themed markets too – get started now so you’ve got a good stock ready. (I’ll write up a plan with the measurements and post here on the blog soon.) Imagine it in different colour ways – pastels or traditional. Even hessian, canvas or cotton duck fabric would work well – all good neutral backgrounds.

Be sure to check out the other challengers’ creations at Sarah Lauren where you can vote for your favorite.
