Prize Ribbon Swap

I recently joined in on a Prize Ribbon Swap hosted by Tabitha of Creative Wings Boutique.  This was a little different for me, even though we were to use fabric and ribbons, which I always use!  Admittedly, I did do it a couple of times before I was happy with the final outcome.

My partner was Francie from The Scented Cottage Studio.   One of the things Francie told me was that she loved purple!  Looking at some of the past swap posts that she was a part of helped me come up with this prize ribbon for her.

I have a purple patterned fabric base {using a disc as my foundation} with some pretty pleated purple/lavender ribbon and then added in the various embellishments and image from there.  Lots of seam binding and some pretty purple ribbons hang off the bottom.

I finished off the back with another circle of the purple fabric I used on the front.  I also made a ribbon for Tabitha ~ our hostess.  From Tabitha’s blog I could see she liked pink so that was the color I went with, adding brown in as an accent color.

I used a chocolate brown pleated ribbon around a pink and brown polka dotted fabric, highlighting the ribbon middle with some pink pearls.

I looped pieces of the sheer striped pink ribbon and glued them to the back.  I added in a monogram T in the middle {in a chocolate and pink colorway}, pretty pink ribbons, some seam binding, and another circle of the fabric attached to the back {to give it a finished off look} completed this prize ribbon.

I also sent along a few little goodies with these two prize ribbons and I hope both ladies love them!
