Love them!  I've read that you can use fusible webbing to keep the ribbons in place too.  I'm dying to try this.  Ribbon pillows are beautiful -- and yours especially.

If you check the first post in this thread you will see the pink and black ribbin pillow I made for my daughter's pink and black room make-over. Well, I finally finished the room yesterday, and here are the rest of the images I have taken.

Another ribbin pillow:


The bed made:


The curtains:






The hardest part of the room I did not take pics of was the plastering I did on all the walls. The room is huge at 20x10, and ceilings of 10 ft high. I am very pleased with the outcome of the room. Smiley

By the way my daughter is 21, and a senior in college. So this will eventually be my sewing room when she graduates, and moves. Wink

Wow, I'm jealous, that room is awesome! (and I can't help but LOVE that tall pink kitty sitting on the desk). I think black and pink work really well together (but with all my pets, black is out of the question).

do you know about how many yards of ribbon you used or how many rolls?
I saw tons of ribbon on clearance the other day and Just remembered this.  Grin

The amount of ribbon all depends on what size you want the pillow.

The first one is very small, and probably only used about 2 yards. The second pillow is larger, but so is the ribbon. It only took about 2 yards also.  Smiley

Thanks for giving me a great idea for the bag of ribbon my dad gave me!!  It's been sitting in the bottom of a bin for ages, now I can put it to good use.

p.s. - the finished room is very chic.  your daughter's very lucky to have such an awesome mom like you!

Thank you loreleiariadne!

This is a great way to use scrap ribbon. I'm also thinking of trying to do some sort of blanket, too. I have sooo much ribbon, and many pieces too small to use for anything. But I cannot stand to throw it away, and want to find a use for it all.

Thank you too for the lovely compliment on my Mom skills.  Smiley
