Ribbons & Bows...

...just a few finishing touches.

It was nearly panic stations when I went to get some more of the flocked ribbon. After finally deciding how I was going to finish off my basket, fate nearly threw a spanner in the works. Would you believe it...both ribbons were almost at the end of their reels so I only managed to get 1.5m of each.
After tying a couple of bows in each colour it was clear I wouldn't have enough for more bows.
I had to resort to some knotted ribbons rather than bows.
A scattering of knots and I think the basket has just enough of a finished look to it.
I re-did the handle to tidy-up the bows and make them look more presentable. Then replaced the minibooks back in their home.
I love this flocked ribbon, it is so pretty and I think the extra bows are just enough to complete the look.

They are due to get some more of these baskets in at Maisie-Moos so I may well treat myself to another one ...or two, and decorate them to fit in with other rooms in the house............................................
