My latest addiction : Ribbon Work Flowers

My husband says I need another “craft-addiction” like I need another hole in my head, but I simply couldn’t resist!  I’ve always bought “silk” flowers at the fabric shops… they are generally near the front of the store, and they are just so beautiful!  Do I USE them?  Well, not really as one would ordinarily USE flowers…. I take rip them apart use them to embellish my bears.  Then I started buying quite a few vintage millinery flowers from eBay and antique stores.  Again… all for the bears.  But, in my quest to try to only use handmade items on my little lovelies…. I decided that I simply MUST learn to make my very own flowers.  And so it began…..

I am utterly and hopelessly hooked.  I mean, I’ve loved playing with ribbons since I was tying them onto my pigtails, so this is just a lovely grown-up extension of that whole hair bow fascination I guess.  I can’t wait to get a few more done and add some pictures here!
