Old-Fashioned Ribbon Trimmings and Flowers by Mary Brooks Picken

The art of fashioning decorative accents with ribbons is enjoying a revival among today's crafters, who find it the perfect way to add lovely touches to clothing, personal items, household accessories, and more.
Reproduced from a rare vintage edition, this profusely illustrated how-to book describes how to fold and sew lengths of ribbon to create dramatic ruffles, bows, and bands. You'll also learn how to use ribbon to fashion appealing florals; daisies, chrysanthemums, rosebuds, violets, petunias, dahlias, sunflowers, and even complete bouquets. Then use these charming ribbon creations to trim a hat, decorate baby clothes and lingerie, add a luxurious touch to lampshades and cushions, or embellish shoes, baby carriages, blankets, coat hangers, and much more.
Step-by-step instructions show you exactly how to proceed. No special talent, other than minimal sewing skill, is required to learn ribbon art techniques and experience the satisfaction of creating an attractive item for yourself, your home, or a special someone.
