FREE DIY Ribbon Storage Hack - Mobile and Easy

I recently went to a "Last Quilters Standing" challenge and one of my quilting projects "Llama Love You" required some ribbons.  I didn't realize how much stuff you had to pack for such an event, but wanted to make sure I had enough  supplies/projects to work on since you couldn't leave to pick anything up.  
I didn't really know what all ribbons I wanted to use on the "Llama Love You" quilt and always over buy, so I decided to bring them all.  Hence the issue of how to transport them all.  I decided to use a cheap clothes hanger - the kind you get from the cleaners!  I just untwisted the twisty part at the top, slid the ribbons on and twisted it back!!!  It worked great.  I could hang the ribbons from my chair to audition them for the quilt and unroll them with ease!!!
Once home, I displayed my ribbon hanger on my thread holder to add a little more sparkle/color to my sewing room.  The great thing about this hack is that you can easily add/remove ribbons for mobile transport!!!

Add a little "drama" to your llama or any quilt/wall hanging - TGIFF

We are so excited to share our Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday- Llama Love You Quilt! 
Check out all the special details below and can't wait to see other's creations!


Our name is SewWithSparkles because we like sparkles and glitter, but another thing we really like is embellishments to add some "drama" to our quilts/wall hangings.  The possibilities are "limitless"!!!  It's amazing how just a few embellishments can really bring a quilt or wall hanging to life!!! 

On our "Llama Love You" quilt PATTERN we added eyes, eye lashes, necklaces, bows, flowers, ribbons/rick-rack, buttons, etc and used faux fur fabric for the bodies!!!









All of these items can be bought at a fabric or craft store or on-line.  You will want to add these embellishments to your top right before it's quilted!!!  The ribbon and rick-rack can be sewed on by machine and the rest of the embellishments can be sewn on my hand.  The faux fur is an applique process which uses Pellon 805 Wonder Under to fuse it to the background fabric.  The "Llama Love You" quilt is really easy to make and such fun and personal!!!



On our "Limitless" quilt we added metallic sparkle thread, glow in the dark thread, embroidered words and fun binding!!!






On our FredBird wall hanging we added sew on google eyes, baseball buttons, shoe laces and iron-on decals.


Let's see yours:
