May Arts Ribbon Baby Hop




The Ribbon Lady has an announcement.  She's hired a very special assistant (I hear she works for ba-ba's, is very cute and adorable, and that her momma, daddy and big brother are quite smitten with her.  :-)

The Ribbonistas are having a Baby Hop to formally welcome the Ribbon Baby to the team.

I've created a set of soft blocks with ribbon tabs using a variety of May Arts ribbons for color and texture.



I found the basic tutorial for these 4" x 4" blocks here.  The author only used 4 pieces of ribbon but we know that where May Arts Ribbon is involved, more is much better!

I used crochet velvet, crochet lace, velvet, grosgrain, satin, chevron, faux suede and more for lots of tactile interest.  The pretty fabric is from Moda.

These are quite addictive to make and I'll be making some to keep on hand for last minute baby gifts.

Here's the rest of the hop so you don't miss a day of sweet baby inspiration and a chance to win a spool of ribbon from the May Arts Ribbon Baby Section.  There will 3 winners so be sure to comment on each blog today and tomorrow.
