Over the past few months, I’ve been growing my stash here and there but haven’t had a chance to adequately photograph everything so that I can share it with you. Now that I’ve actually completed all of my pre-baby sewing goals (and still no baby), it’s time to remedy that, and what better way to start than with some winnings! Around my early April birthday this year, I was lucky enough (literally!) to win a few giveaways. One of them was an Instagram giveaway by Renaissance Ribbons, from which I won some of the new Tula Pink ribbons.
I won a yard each of Lantern Ribbon in burgundy and Flower Bud Ribbon in black from the Tula Pink Renaissance Ribbons line. I haven’t yet decided what to do with these beauties, but I’m so excited to add them to my stash!
I’ve worked with Renaissance ribbons only two times before (I made a zipped pouch, and a thread catcher and pin cushion), and they are SO gorgeous and easy to work with! The colors are bright and bold, you can pin the ribbons during sewing and not a single sign of the pin hole remains once the pin is removed, and they are wonderfully thick and sturdy, not to mention the wide variety of patterns and designs, some of which coordinate with fabric designers’ fabric lines. What’s not to love?
I don’t have a specific project idea in mind yet; what would you make with these gorgeous ribbons?
I’m linking up with Molli Sparkles’ Sunday Stash.

I think a cute lanyard for your snipping scissors would be great with this.
I feel myself on the verge of becoming obsessed with ribbon! Your photos are gorgeous! It’s possible that you might start seeing ribbons in every project I make. I better go do I wash test and see just how durable they are. I’ll let you know.
I’ve been eying this project for awhile: http://www.sew4home.com/projects/storage-solutions/renaissance-ribbons-designer-barrel-tote
They have a good number of ribbon projects, just look under “ribbon” in the project index.
I remember my mom use them in are dresses…..Hippy dresses but was so cool back when i was 10 …..My mom made a lot of are dresses thats why i sew today ps love your ribbon brought back memories….
Check out “Table Art” by Debby Maddy. It is a great way to show off beautiful ribbons.
I never know what to do with ribbons, but they are ridiculously pretty!
Nice to hear the good fuss about our Renaissance Ribbons! They are totally durable, often used on dog collars! Made of a fine polyester thread, does not take well the heat, warm water and warm iron should do!
Let me know if any concern, question or compliments!!

I still do not know, but they are so lovely they need to be made into the star feature.
