Hello!
Last Xmas I made something new: a cushion. I chose a very soft fabric and colorful ribbons! I've never sewed ribbons but I like how they look.
If you want to try it, one tip: don't use pins to hold the ribbon. I made it and I had so many pins I wasn't able to sew!! so, what I did was punting only on tip at the beginning and I held the ribbon with my fingers at the same time I turned the fabric in order to make a rounded shape.
This is the result.

I think it turned out quite nice.  It reminds me of a painting I saw once.  Nice job.  I actually thought you had to have a special foot for a sewing machine to put ribbon on, but thanks, it is nice to know that you do not.

This turned out great! Sewing ribbons must be difficult!

Thanks! and yes at the beginning was very difficult (sewing ribbons) but when I discover that I didn't need to put pins and the only thing I had to do was turning the fabric and adjusting the ribbon to the shape I wanted, all turned to be easier. However I think is quite difficult (and I didn't dare to try it) to make symmetric shapes.
