I see, I sea

 Here we are for another challenge at Crafty ribbon's. the theme this week is Anything Goes with Ribbon.

So, a couple of things; 1. you need some imagination... remember that big yellowy warm thing that used to be in the sky...Sun, yes that's it. Okay, when that's at it's best we need to use eye protection 'sun glasses' you may recall having a pair....like mine they are probably languishing in the back of a drawer gathering dust. But I found DH's, so they will do just fine for this. 2. sorry a few pictures, hope you don't mind.
I decided to make a case for sunglasses. On a nautical theme.....using some gorgeous ribbons from Crafty Ribbon's Nautical range.



 I used some kind of bonding paper, purchased from Hobbycraft...you iron the ribbons onto the paper, the paper bit peels away leaving a fine mesh holding the bits onto it.....I then zigzag stitched along the joins.added some white felt to the back, stitched around the top, adding a little loop of blue grosgrain ribbon (Crafty Ribbons blueberry jampot collection), then down the side and along the bottom. Turned it the right way around, finally stitching on a red button (Crafty Ribbons).
Didn't take long !

Thanks for stopping by,
