Looks like it's that time again!.. Pink Saturday! Special thanks to Beverly, who hosts this event each and every week! Be sure to visit her at How Sweet the Sound, to see a listing of all the participants today, and all the pink goodies they have to share!
What I have to show today, is actually inspired from Debbie's Pink Saturday post on July 24th, titled "Pink Flag Saturday", at Ribbonwood Cottage! Here she shared a tutorial on how to make a very pretty little pink flag, so I decided to give it a try! Having finished sewing it, I then found myself having way too much fun playing with everything from buttons and ribbons, to rickrack and embroidery flosses! The width of my flag looks a little longer than Debbie made hers; but here you can see how I made my first one in various shades of PINK!
Once I finished it, I decided I wanted to hang it under a knickknack shelf in my living room, so from there I had to decide how. I painted a dowel rod and two wooden beads, in PINK of course, then with grosgrain ribbon tabs, you can now see how that worked nicely enough for my purposes! By the way, I don't own a saw, so I used an old steak knife to cut the wooden dowel to the length I wanted. I would not advise this to anyone, and I'm happy to report that all ten of my fingers are still present and accounted for!
Well, could I stop there? Does that sound like me?! Good Gracious! Of course not! I had so much fun with the first one, I HAD to make a second flag! This time I made one in blues, if you'll pardon my sneaking another color in today! I made this one to hang in my kitchen! I'm still deciding on any embellishments and finishing touches, if any.. But I'm happy with it already!
Now I'm thinking I could make these for Christmas gifts, or I maybe I could make them into placemats or throw pillows! If you think you'd like to try to make a flag.. or two.. or three!.. then make sure you stop over to Ribbonwood Cottage for this and other beautiful sewing and decorating ideas that Debbie has to share!.. Oh!.. and thank you Debbie! I really did have fun with this!
In the meantime, Happy Pink Saturday to everybody today! Thank you for stopping by, and hope you're enjoying a wonderful weekend!
