What do you do with that ribbon?

Standard

“Oh, I love these ribbons.  I have to have some!  But what am I going to do with them?”  This is one of the questions that I get most frequently from customers.  They are so inspired by the colors and the richness of the Sari Trims, but don’t know what to do with them.  So I thought it would be fun to share some ideas with you here, and to ask you all to share your designs too!  
I have a favorite pair of blue jeans that had finally gotten so beat up and ripped that they really called for some jazzing up and patching.  So I thought the trims would be the PERFECT solution!  And what I love most is that they are a work in progress.  I’m a “more the merrier” kind of gal and love to keep adding to all of my projects.  One of my projects this weekend is to add some of the newest trims to my jeans.  Here’s a picture of what they look like, and some of the new ribbons that I am planning to add:

I can’t tell you how many compliments I get on these every time I wear them.  I literally hear people talking about my jeans as I walk past!  And this is such an easy project.  I am NOT a seamstress.  By any means.  I used my sewing machine on the parts that I could reach, and hand-stitched the rest.  It is a super-fun, super-easy project that anyone can do.  So get crafty and create!  

Do any of you have fun creations that you’ve made using ribbons and trims from WomanShopsWorld?  I’d love to share them here (with a link to you, of course)!  Feel free to message me: womanshopsworld@gmail.com with your pictures!

I’ll post more pictures of my jeans as they evolve.
Wishing you a lovely, creative, weekend!

Until next time,

For the love of ribbon

Standard

I feel like a butterfly at times, lighting here and there, but only for a moment.   I am quite fortunate that my currently inventory levels are at an all-time high.  There are so many goods things piled up in this warehouse that I can’t list them fast enough.  I am a “bit chomper”….I can’t do anything fast enough.  So while having all of this inventory is so awesome, it also stresses me out because I want to photograph it and list it all at once!  And so I bounce around from one box to the next, one pile to the other, pulling a few things from here, a few from there.  My goal these days is to offer you 5 new items a day.  Be they ribbons, beads, tassels, textiles, I hope to bring you 5 new treasures daily.  Today’s offerings are from my ribbon stash.  As we move towards Fall, I have chosen some richer palettes for this week.  Here are some freshly-photographed items, just listed today.

In addition to bringing you lots of global goods daily, I am efforting to check in here more often.  Many of you have told me lately that you didn’t realize I have a blog.  I don’t have much of one, but I hope to change that.  We’ve got some travels and adventures coming up here in the next few months, and I think it would be fun to share that with you all.  So I’m going to start nurturing the blogging habit starting now.
