She Shall Have Ribbons!

I love trims. I put them on everything! I use them for flower stems, tote bags, quilt edges, pincushions, Christmas decorations, cat collars, hems and anything else I can think of. I keep a stash in my studio just in case the need strikes. I even love just looking at them! So while I was at market, I walked past the ribbon booths and well you can guess the rest, I bought lots of trims. They’ve been arriving over the past few weeks and FINALLY I have them for sale on my web site. You can find them here at Bunny Hill.

…and more trims

…and more trims!

Now for the great part! I’ve just listed FOUR pages of trims. Four pages! Do you realize how many trims that is? Well one of you will find out very soon! As I was photographing these trims I was also cutting a yard of each one. The stack kept growing and growing and now one lucky person is going to win this pile of trims! 1 yard of every trim on my web site! It’s a giveaway! I’ll choose a winner on Saturday, November 29th. Just tell me why you want this stack of trims! Oh my, I think a few are missing. Do you see them all in the stack below? I may have to cut some more! And she shall have ribbons where ever she goes….

Good luck everyone. May you be sewing with trims very soon! And, yes I’ll package them in a much prettier fashion. (:

  • Anonymous - That is truly amazing. I was just looking at your site last night and enjoying the couple I saw on there and just happened to read your blog today not expecting to see a post from you at this very busy time. Voila…So I guess that means I will be first to post. Hope that is a good thing. I collect ribbons and things in my old canning jars. Just love looking at them but I do have to confess I use them for my sister’s birthday gifts and also to tie up little bundles of fabric when I give them as gifts, such as our little friend in Berlin, Germany. I tied up red, white and blue pieces for her. Happy Turkey Day!

  • Brenda - I NEED ribbons, LOL! I just can’t think of prettier site than a quilt trimmed with rick rack…oh they are sweet. I would love to win your giveaway so sign me up…woo-hoo!

Check out my post today to see what I did with gingham ribbon. Pick me! LOLReplyCancel

  • Patti - Oh boy, I’m starting to fall in love with trims as much as fabric. I too like to keep a canning jar full of buttons, trims, and even fabric scraps. Your trims would certainly be an inspiration to embellish more of everything. They are all so beautiful.ReplyCancel

  • Jackie - Okay Anne, you’ve got it!! I just absolutely adore trims too. I could put it on a quilt, on a bag or tote. I can dress up some jeans or shirt.

I love them!! Thanks for the opportunity!ReplyCancel

  • Annelies Dease - DEEEEElightful!!!! Love trims and I put them on quilts, clothing, bags and sometimes I just look at them like dear little friends.

  • Sherri - What lovely trims…I can’t wait to head over to your web site and look at them some more!

  • jeanette - I sure do hope to win this one…ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - It would be WONDERFUL to win all those gorgeous pieces! I could use them on purses, quilts, ornaments, dishtowels, aprons and they would be adorable on a bag/carrier for the back of my daughter’s wheelchair.

  • Catherine - Hi Anne – please pick me as your winner. No crafter can have too many trims. As you say, they look good on anything and nothing can make a bag, quilt, ornament, cushion or a cat collar (not that I’m an expert in this field) look quite so fabulous as a little decorative touch. Thank you for offering such an amazing giveaway. Even though I’m in Australia, I do hope I’m the lucky one to receive this fabulous parcel. It’d be like visiting a lolly shop and coming out with bag fulls to delight the tastebuds everyday. All the best, CatherineReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - Ribbons are AMAZING!!
    I discovered the use of them some time ago and now I am sewing ribbons on all sort of things – cushions, little stitchery quilts etc.
    And I also stock them in beautiful glass jars as well as buttons, beads and all sorts of other colourful things.
    The glass jars were in our kitchen for pasta etc but using them for sewing articles is so much nicer.
    Have a great stitching day,
    Hugs from Holland (covered in snow)

Buy them all to bring home and you can taste one by one. I would love to be the lucky one to get all your beautifull ribbons to my home.ReplyCancel

  • tam - Wow absolutely amazing! Oh how I love trims! Ric rac, thin fat all colors! I always try to use trim in everything I do-makes them look so much more finished. What a lovely collection you have-and what a wonderful give away. I will tell you why I need and I do mean need to win. Have you seen my blog? I am refinishing the most wonderful giant cabinet to store all off my sewing and crafting supplies. I can hardly wait to fill it up! I do not have near enough goodies to fill it yet! Previously I could not buy much because I had no where to keep it (besides I have a tight budget)all and now I do-hooray! I am planning on starting my own little online store of hand made items. I am a stay at home mom/grandma and need to find a way to help the tight family budget. So it is time to put my hobby to work! I am very excited about it but I need stock to get started. My megar supply won’t last long. So winning this give away would be a blessing for me! I adore your blog and store. Just love the style-I love everything about it! I am fairly new to blogging and it has been a blast getting to know everyone and seeing all of the wonderfully talented folks. Your site is inspiring and I thank you for it! Happy Thanksgiving and many blessings to you and your families!

  • Shelia - Wow. This is an awesome assortment of trims. Don’t think I’ve seen that many in a long, long time. OOh what you could do with those beauties. flower stems, rosettes, seaweed, book bindings, christmas stocking decorations, embelishment for a vest for my friend Kay. oh my mind is buzzing with activity. Now I know I won’t sleep, too many ideas dancing in my head. The Christmas spirit is at work.
    Many blessings to you and your family during this holiday season. A special christmas wish for ribbons in my stocking.

  • Anonymous - OMGosh….could you imagine 100 different trims arriving at once?! I didn't even know you could buy rickrack by the spool…lol.
    First of course, I'd have to just play with them, then I'd line them up all neat & tidy. It would be fun to make a committment to use each one in a project…100 little projects…100 little doll dresses would be so sweet, hang some on a mini clothesline…ooooo the possibilities are endless for what to do with these! I can't wait to see what the winner does with them, of course I'd welcome the one to have that dilemma! Smiles, DianeM :)

  • Jean - Ribbons and trims… wonderful!
    It’s hard to just walk by them isnt’ it? I suppose that the main reason that I wouldn’t mind making a home for these wonderful trims is because I have just been blessed with two new grandchildren to sew for! My dd and her dh have just adopted these two sweet little sweeties. A 15 month old little girl and a 2 month old little boy. Yes, brother and sister, and they had a 3 year old to boot! So, it’s sewing time for grandma… what’s not to love about grandkids, trims and sewing?
    So sweet of you to share with one of us! Thanks!ReplyCancel

I never feel a piece is complete without something special. It isn’t easy to find ribbons and laces and rickrack, although rickrack is becoming more popular now. Beautiful selection! Thank you!ReplyCancel

  • Christine - I love the ribbons!!! I too have a large collection, I love to use them on tons of things. I love it when I have something in my stash that is just right for something I’m working on!

  • Paulette - Why would I want the trim? How could anyone NOT want the trim!!!! Trim for feather trees, for aprons, wall quilts…lavendar wands (which I make many of every year)….trim makes EVERYTHING just a little bit better.

    Thank you for a beautiful website that I visit several times a week just to bask in the colors and images.

  • Nicki - Oh WOW! I’d love to win your trims. A girl can never have too many pieces of ribbon and trim and I know every scrap would get used eventually!ReplyCancel

Of course I haven’t gotten them on my site yet – you are way ahead of me! They are beautiful and I’ve been dreaming of what to do with them…can’t wait to see what you’ll come up with. XOXO Mary JaneReplyCancel

  • Christine - Are you kidding?! Of course I want to win the trims!! I have 3 daughters, 3 granddaughters and ME!! I will use up odd-n-ends trims to make bibs with for the grands. Sometimes they come out looking a little goofy since I will just use whatever is there. With a NEW stash of trims, I could make much more coordinated bibs. Not to mention when I am sewing for the granddaughters and their baby dolls and quilts and stuff and more stuff.

    PS I even collect ribbons that come from tied up charm packs, gift boxes, sweatshirt hoods, drawstring pants, floral bouquets, etc. You get the picture.ReplyCancel

  • julia - Ribboooooons…love them. Collect them. Always want more of them…does that count as an answer to what I’d do with them? *lol*
    If I had them right now I would definitely use them on my swap blocks (sunbonnet sue appliqué) – I’m searching my ribbon stash and found it’s clearly too small, just don’t have the variety I need to find the PERFECT trim for each block ;o).

  • lovetostitch - I would love to win these – well because we are collectors of everything. If we don’t have a use just now, next week we will. Trims are a must to have on hand!!! Not to mention either all the uses I could use with your patterns – I have one in the works, and I know I don’t have enough trims for the bunny wagons. LindaReplyCancel

  • Vicki - If I win the trims, I promise to be a really good girl, and to take very good care of them. And only use them if they agree to it.

  • wendybird - I just love your site Anne – I must check in every night before I turn off my computer. This is the first time I have left a comment though – I love love love the trims. Whenever I buy something new like trim or buttons I like to leave them out so I can cast a gaze as I am working. Makes for a messy sewing environment but I love it.ReplyCancel

  • Lauren - Trims provide the finishing touch on so many projects. They are hard to find in the region of Australia where I live, so to win these lovelies would make me very happy indeed. Christmas stockings, little girls' dresses & apron pockets are just some of the projects that spring to mind when I think of what I could do with these gorgeous trims.ReplyCancel

  • Library Gal Quilts - Hi Anne, Wow, I just love the ribbon! I had ribbon as a theme for my wedding shower. Everyone bought me ribbon as a gift for an antique thread box that I was given by my dear friend Helen. She had been given it by her husband years before. Needless to say I rec’d a variety of wonderful lengths of colors and patterns. Each person put their name on a tiny tag that my friend Sally had made by hand and sewn on the tail end of the piece. They have been used in bits but not in whole. I love them dearly! I think it’s time they had so new neighbors, so please put my name in the drawing. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Pam in ChicoReplyCancel

  • tunnicliffe - Love your blog, love your quilts and love your patterns. In fact, I just finished your “Tulips for Beginners”, I’m using it for a tablecloth in my guestroom. I would love to win those gorgeous trims, right now I’m making Christmas ornaments for my quilting/stitching pals and having a heck of a time finding narrow trims. The velvet ric rac would be perfect for the vintage look I’m going for. Thanks – Karen T.ReplyCancel

  • A.L. - Gorgeous!

    If I did win(highly unlikely, but a girl can dream, can’t she…) I would loop them around my lampshade and pet them.
    Some might find their way into small art quilt projects.


  • Dee - Aren’t trims fun, I just got my Mom’s old Singer last year and in the drawer was yellow rick rack – gosh, Mom was definitely speaking to me from heaven as yellow is her and my favorite color – it just looks so pretty that I am saving it until I find just the right project to use it on. I like to use trims on pin cushions and small gifts. Happy Thanksgiving – Dee, MNReplyCancel

  • Rose - Why do I want these pretty trims? Because I am an antuque little girl with 4 lovely grand daughters. We love to sew and craft things . These trims are delicious!ReplyCancel

  • Chris - Hi your ribbons are so gorgeous. There are so many things I can think of to use them for but first up is two quilts for my daughters that’s if my son who will probably try and give the cat the ribbons to play with doesn’t see them.ReplyCancel

  • Jilly in Idaho - Ohh, (sigh), these sweet ribbons bring back so many memories. When growing up my mom made all of our dresses for school and she would try to make the simple fabric a little more special with ribbon, trim and buttons. She would match the trim for bows in our ponytails. At the time how I wished for a store bought dress, just one, but that wasn’t to be. In looking back at old photos we looked so sweet and crisp and our dresses didn’t look homemade. Moma made all of our clothes, including play clothes, after coming home from work.
    She’s looking down on me now as I write this and I hope she’s smiling as I remember those times.

    I now have two young granddaughters and they beg me to make them dresses and make them “with fancy stuff”, meaning with ribbon, trim and buttons. Funny how full circle this has come. They don’t want store bought dresses.
    Your pretty ribbons are so similar to what my mom used and I would love to put them on the dresses I’m making for gifts for my granddaughters. Wouldn’t these be wonderful pictures in our family album?

    Thank you for the opportunity.

  • Pauline - What lovely ribbons and rick rack! I would love to win some to add to the things I would make for my granddaughters. Rick Rack reminds of simpler times in my life–when I was a child and when I sewed them onto the clothing I would make for my little girl, who is now 40. Thank you for the opportunity to be in your drawing.ReplyCancel
