Love Ribbon Pillow & A Gift For You!

Many crafters tend to think and work in paper. This year fabrics are emerging and making an impact on our crafts. Be it through handmade clothing, accessories and yes....home decor!

Designer Kristen Swain shows how fabrics, ribbons and our FabricBond are the perfect combination for helping bring a little love into your home!


Love Pillow Hanger

Designer: Kristen Swain



Supplies:
Glue Arts Hot Glue Gun, Fabric Bond and Glue Glider Pro Gun
May Arts -Ribbons
Lace- Walmart
Muslin or light cotton fabric
fiberfill
button/twine
glitter stems



Instructions:

1. Cut an 8x8 piece of doubled fabric, then trim pieces of ribbon to fit across and down fabric length with a slight overlap.
2. Use Fabric Bond to adhere ribbons to fabric and each other in a basket weave pattern.
3. Heat set using warm iron.
4. Turn right sides together and sew 3 edges of fabric, turn right side out and stuff with fiberfill, then hand stitch open hole closed.
5. Use Hot Glue gun to attach lace across bottom parts of pillow. Knot both ends of a 8 inch piece of ribbon, hot glue to top of pillow for handle.
6. Use hot glue to create ribbon roses, attach to top of pillow with more hot glue, adding in glitter stems, ribbon and button with twine. 








How's that for inspiring! The ribbon pillow we know you'll want to give a try!

We want to help you with your crafting needs! May Arts has teamed up all week long with us and will send one random winner this amazing selection of ribbons!


and no crafting can commence unless you have Glue Arts products to work with! So we'll send to the same winner a Glue Glider Pro, our Must Have Ribbon Adhesive and our Adhesive Squares. The perfect combination of products! 


Just leave us a comment today and we'll pick a winner on Monday who will enjoy these prizes!
