And just like that, we are at the end of the first Blogger Competition of 2016. Can you believe it? So…make sure you come back next week to help us crown our winner! You get to vote on your favorite project from this friendly competition! I have LOVED, LOVED, LOVED our previous competing projects, and once again…I am absolutely in LOVE with our last and final project brought to us by the amazingly talented Adrienne from Free Time Frolics. Adrienne is sharing a most fabulous and festive Ribbon Bunny that is so cute and even has a fluffy little tail. This bunny is really, really terrific and cute beyond words but the best part…it is suuuuuper easy to create! Enjoy!
Hello Ribbon Retreaters! I am so excited to be sharing my Blogger Competition Project. I received a bag of goodies from The Ribbon Retreat, and I would love to share my hand made wall hanging with you today. You can customize it to any holiday! Today I chose a bunny to hang for Easter but the possibilities are endless!
Here is what you need to get started:
Fabric (large enough to fit the hoop)
7 or 8 different Ribbons (the length will depend on how large your shape is. Mine were 12 inches each.)
Pom Pom Fringe
Flower of choice
1. Pick enough ribbons for your pattern. Pin them onto a large piece of felt. Overlapping slightly. Stitch the ribbon down along the edges.
2. Place pattern on ribbon fabric. Pin and cut.
3. Using a match or fire stick burn the edges of your holiday shape. This will keep the ribbon from fraying.
4. Place shape onto embroidery hoop. Use a little hot glue to hold the shape in place. Using embroidery floss, stitch around the outer edge of your shape.
5. If you’re making a bunny, add a cute flower as the tail. I used hot glue to add mine but you could stitch it on as well.
6. Add some pom pom fringe to the outside edge of the embroidery hoop and a bow at the top.
All finished! Use it to hang on a door, wall, or as part of chalkboard art.
The great thing about this project is that you can use it for any holiday. Other shapes you could use are a:
4 leaf clover, heart, umbrella, flag, pumpkin, bat, turkey, Christmas tree or stocking.
Wow…Adrienne, thank you! What a fun project to do for any holiday! I love that bunny tail and how you used that cute, cute pom pom fringe as a border for your hoop! FABulous!
