We really are a crazy bunch, us/we(?) crafters. We save the darndest things. "In case need them" .. or we think, .. "hey, I can use that", and we stash it in our ever growing little (and sometimes not-so-little) container or containerssss (very plural) of bits and bobs.
Here is my latest. Look at the beautiful satiny ribbons I've been finding on even the cheapest of t-shirts I've bought in the past few weeks. Extra little straps for hanging them so they don't slip off hangers I guess...... when the heck did they start doing that for $9 t-shirts? I haven't bought any for a few years........maybe it is not that new to everybody else.
Menswear has always been so nicely finished with edges encased and nowadays with the insides of collars even having velvet ribbon. I love looking at mens clothing and marvelling. And...the past few reeeelly cheap little articles I've purchased.... look at this! Instead of just zigazg crap finishing ..... ribbon!
On my 2/$20 t-shirts for heaven's sake. I was very surprised, to say the least.
And.....look how much of that ribbon for hanging there actually is....
Fully fourteen inches on each side .....
I can use it for a multitude of things...trim..bows... collars.... attachments. Cute little bows .. and how many.... now I'm thinking these t-shirts are an even better bargain. For $10 I also get 28 inches of 1/8 inch satiny ribbon. Such a deal! I've now got some black, pink, yellow and turquoise...... I think I need to begin another bits and bobs box. Wonder if Rubbermaid has some on sale.
