Bias-Cut Silk Ribbon

We just received a new shipment of hand-dyed bias-cut silk ribbon. Every time these ribbons arrive, I want to stop and create something with them. They can be used with all the tradtional ribbon-folding techniques. But I like to take a length of ribbon, add a gathering stitch on one side of the ribbon and pull to gather. Instantly  beautiful flowers that need to be surrounded with velvet leaves and vintage beads! Check out the vintage velvet chapeau that I've trimmed using bias-cut silk ribbon.
