Postie's been!

Oh, I do like an online shop that delivers quickly!

On Tuesday morning, at about quarter to eleven, I came across 'Ribbon Girl' online.

I placed an order for silk ribbon - oh, and a few other items that proved irresistible - as I was a bit dissatisfied with the shiny, synthetic-y ribbon I'd put on the ballet wrap. (Thanks for all the nice comments!)

By yesterday morning, when we returned from a walk mid-morning, the postman had been, delivering a lovely squishy package!

What loveliness within!

Velvet ric-rac in two delicious colours...

A super-cheap bundle of twelve pastel four inch zips - oh I have plans for these!

A special offer - won't be around long!

Some scrunched taffeta ribbon...

The silk ribbon, nice and wide and oh-so-soft...

Some twill ribbon...

19mm twill ribbon

Some faux silk ribbon - just to make sure the real silk is what I really like, which it is!

And some vintage style seam binding...

Ribbon Girl doesn't just sell things that make a sewing-fiend like me sing, it has lots for papercrafters, scrapbookers and the like!  And there is a regular giveaway on the blog.

I have not been 'sponsored' to do this post, just in case anyone suspects my motives!  I'm just happy to spread the word about online suppliers who offer a great service.


  1. I am expecting a couple of parcels way hey!

  2. Thanks for this. I used to have a brill ribbon supplier but they closed and I have been looking for an alternative ever since. I shall check Ribbon Girl out. I love the ballet wrap by the way. M x

  3. When I worked in a craft shop I used to look forward to the ribbon order coming in. I'm off to have a look!
