Introducing... Grand Bazaar RIBBON!
I promised another product reveal today and I was not about to disappoint! Three years ago I designed a collection of 16 jacquard ribbons for J. Caroline Creative using my Andalucia designs. They were so popular that I still get tons of inquiries for them today. So, we've decided to do another line of ribbons, except this time we produced them ourselves, bringing Caroline in as a consultant. :)
May I present to you, Grand Bazaar Jacquard Ribbons...
There are 16 designs total, 8 of them are 1.5" wide and the other 8 are 7/8" wide, 100% Polyester and absolutely gorgeous, if I shall say so myself.
They coordinate perfectly with my Grand Bazaar line of cotton textiles for Michael Miller Fabrics.
There are 6 tone-on-tone prints that are completely reversible and oh, so soft (I am especially excited about those!) so they can be used for things like headbands, hair bows, shoulder straps, or... wait for it... the ties on the Kyoko obi! :)
As you can tell, we've had a blast photographing these every which way possible. Then oooh-ing and ahhh-ing over the vibrant colors...
In case you need ideas on what to make with these luscious ribbons, here are some inspiration shots...
Emalee made these amazing pillows. Yes, folks, these pillows are made with ribbons ONLY... all sewn together in a row!
Here are a couple of close ups. I just adore these!!!
My amazing friend, Gaby, at My Funky Camera, made a bunch of camera straps for me and... she sent me some extras to give away! I'll give one of these straps to a lucky blog reader if you leave me a comment. The others are coming with me to Quilt Market so I can randomly give them away too. See... I told you she was amazing!!!
Here's my BFF Nikki (the crazy camera lady, haha) modeling a bunch of straps! She got to keep one too for her awesome modeling job.
Then, my other awesome friend, Valerie at Sew Much More, made this super cool Sun & Surf Tote using the Persian Skies colorway of Grand Bazaar with some coordinating ribbon.
Isn't it awesome to have friends like these?!? I'm so lucky!!! :)
If you're coming to Quilt Market next week don't forget to stop by our table at Sample Spree. We have prepared some sampler sets of this ribbon so you can take it home and preview it (or touch it, smell it, roll around in it, whatever floats your boat!) Here's a sneak of what's coming with us to Salt Lake City...
Only limited quantities of these kits available and we're not making anymore, so get 'em while they're hot!
***RETAILERS: The ribbon won't be up for purchase until after we return from Quilt Market (end of May), but if you'd like to receive a wholesale price sheet via email, let Jon know at firstname.lastname@example.org and he'll send it to you right away!***
Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered to win a gorgeous camera strap from My Funky Camera! And just because I'm feeling happy and generous... a second winner will receive a sampler package of ribbon!! I'll choose the winners next Monday. Go, go, go!!
