Today, I am so excited to host my first ever blog hop!
About a month ago, I gave away several 9 inch portions of shibori ribbon.
Shibori ribbon is made by Glennis Dolce, who uses a traditional technique to dye and create pleats in silk. The result is a gorgeous ribbon with a ton of uses.
Definitely check out Glennis's bigcartel shop or her etsy shop. The bigcartel shop also offers downloadable instructions and kits.
In preparing for this hop, I looked at many examples of projects using shibori ribbon. You can see a sampling on my pinterest board.
I was taken with Glennis's shibori flowers and decided to try my hand at making one.
I paired the shibori flower with the flower part of Lisa Kan's Corsage Cuff, published in the February 2009 issue of Beadwork magazine.
I liked it so much that I made a hair clip.
The kiddo was kind enough to take an "action shot"
I just love the folds in the ribbon and how they move in and out. I will definitely be playing with this ribbon more in the future.
Please take a few minutes and hop around to the participants. I know you will love what they made.
