Learning in Action

I have learnt several things recently. One was that ring cushions often have ribbon on them to tie the rings in place to make sure they don't fall off.

I made this last night using the waistcoat lining as the main fabric and a smidge of petrol blue organza as the overlay on the top.

I kind of swirled the organza and caught it down with a stitch or two and a bead or so. This project also taught me what this kind of needle is for.

I'd always wondered. It is for adding ribbon after you'd sewn it all up.

Yarse, I think you can also use those needles for soft toy making, to similar purpose.
