Zakka Patchwork Ribbon

Yep! It's true -- Zakka style ribbon!  This little project is a great way to use up fabric scraps, AND have some interesting ribbon to use.

 I forgot to take pictures along the way, but to make this I sewed together a small patchwork using 12 squares.  After cutting 2 1/2 inch strips on a bias, I sewed them together into a long strip.  Then as the instructions in the book suggested, I folded the strip wrong sides together and stitched along the edges.  How simple can it get?  Others in the sew along have added great creativity to theirs.  For mine, I just decided to keep it simple and quick.  As always, I am posting at LRStitched.  By the way, if you click on this link, you will see my little elephant bookmark was one of the featured projects! That is just too fun!!


  1. Such sweet fabric for ribbon, pretty as a package! Nice to have your elephant featured. Happy Quilting

  2. Your scrappy ribbon is really wonderful. It will make a gift all the more special!
