A quick fix with Websters Canvas Ribbon

I have been playing with my pack of Websters Pages Hollywood Vogue papers and decided to have a go at using up the Fabric Ribbon that they make to match each line.


I started with a pair of sandals that the bling has fallen off and glued a
strip of the canvas ribbon onto it.


I stitched it on with a sewing machine (I think I need a leather needle in future!!).


I made my lace ribbon flowers by threading fine wire through the edge of the lace and pulling it tight, it's quick and easy.


A hot gun to attach the flowers and voila....one new pair of sandals.



I have started on a matching bag too......yippee I have lots of canvas ribbon and lots of ideas. What do you like to make with it?

  1. I love your sandals! Gorgeous! I saw a tee shirt with 2 shabby chic flowers sewed on, and it was fantastic except for the price! I'd rather sew a couple on myself! Hugs,Tee
