Haberdashery: Velvet Ribbon

velvet ribbon pile

This pile of velvet ribbon is just so pretty. The photo is by Andrea Singarella, and you can buy it by the yard from her at her shop, One Hundred Wishes in colors like sea glass, fig, and caramel.

I think velvet ribbon can make a really beautiful adornment to clothing. You can add it to sweaters, edgestitch it over seamlines to emphasize shape, or sew rows of it along a hem, neckline, or cuff.
