Crafty Ribbons Challenge: Anything Goes

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my creation for our Anything Goes challenge at Crafty Ribbons. This is why I love the ribbons at Crafty Ribbons-you can make fabulous themed projects just by adding some printed ribbon and matching button sets :-) I chose a thick canvas type fabric in a nautical stripe print to pair with the Nautical Ribbons and matching buttons. I made a little case for the little devices we all have-I like to look after them very well so a sturdy padded case is really useful :-)
I used the fabric, ribbons, buttons and some quilting batting. I made my own pattern by measuring my device and making the case with this in mind.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
