Wondertape is perfect for placing the ribbon and then sewing it down. I can get the pieces perfectly placed and then stitch them in place. It takes a bit of time (sort of like masking before painting) but the process goes so much faster once the ribbon is in place. Sometimes I will use the same colored thread on all pieces, but when I want to change color I’m able to sew all red, then blue, etc.
While it appears the pieces are sewn at random, a lot of thought truly goes into each pillow or project I make. Some colors just look better next to each other. Herringbone and Grosgrain (I also used some really bright Trimming Braid). These bold colors really make a statement when placed together!
Don’t you just love the bright colors this season?
