Some ribbon

Some 1-1/2" wide ribbon I designed is now available here at JCaroline Creative. Check out the other lovely ones by Patty Young, too. This was originally going to be part of a fabric pattern, but Caroline snatched it up and made it into ribbon. Alex saw it yesterday and jokingly suggested I make him some suspenders. Yeah, and I'm sure nobody would make fun of him. Right.

I love those! I'd wear them as suspenders. :o)

You make it sound as if I steal things from you! I asked before I snatched-- or did I?...

Have you considered making your designs into Rubber Stamps for the craft industry? I love the images.

I think you 'should' make him those suspenders. They'd go right nicely with his stylish new glasses.

Sue, okay. Want to find me a manufacturer who would like to pay me?

And yes, everyone, Caroline always asks politely before she snatches. Sometimes she says she MUST have that because it's DYING to be made into ribbon or whatnot. Like it's an emergency. And then snatching occurs. The woman wastes no time.

Lovely! My favorite in the pink.

If I can wear pink pants to visit you guys, he can "man up" and wear these as suspenders.

love this ribbon. so much that when i get some, i'll probably actually use it instead of just looking at it. LOVE!!! (- emily the teacher)

deanna said...

Wonderful! A bit different from your usual style, but no less wonderful. I'd love to see it as fabric.

Rosie Campbell said...

Wow. Fabulous. I am imagining many fun projects.

So great! It would be super to spruce up a boring black camera strap!

Hi Jessica,
I found your blog via your AT house tour, and have been enjoying it since (especially your occasional typography posts).

And then yesterday at lunchtime I spied a handbag made out of your Peapod fabric being carried into the cafeteria of the Harvard Medical School. It was unmistakable. Congratulations on such lively and popular fabric. I just wanted to let you know that it's popping up all over the place!

You are so bad for my wallet.

Beautiful ribbon, I am going to have to snatch some up!

Beth said...

Those are darling.

Jess said...

Tessa, that's so cool! Thanks for telling me!

Marcie said...

Perfect for something I am working on right now! If I ever get around to ordering and finishing, I'll send you a photo!

Larissa said...

Stephanie said...

This is the most stunning ribbon I've seen in sometime. Gorgeous!! Off to take a peek...

Forget the suspenders, I'm picturing a belt! Very nice design!

ArtShades said...

I am guessing suspenders do not hold up stockings in the US as they do in the UK?! Or perhaps I am missing something about your husband..... if you mean they could hold up his trousers (oops, I think you call them 'pants') we call them 'braces'..... are you confused yet? Sarah - from the UK.

PS Lovely whatever you choose to do with them.

Jess said...

You guessed right! Suspenders are for, er, trousers. Braces are for teeth. :)

Sara said...

Fab!
