Ribbon Backed Button Bands and more!

I’ve teamed up with Makers’ Mercantile to produce monthly Facebook Live videos for a series called, Makers’ with Vickie.
In each episode, we focus on a different aspect of mixed fiber media — meaning using crafts and materials across the textile genre. For the latest installment, I showed how to use gorgeous ribbons as both stabilizers and a pop of interest on any knit or crochet button band. We also chatted button types and how to crochet a rectangle in the popular corner to corner crochet (c2c) method. We rounded off the segment with a punchy pillow that puts all of the skills to use. Watch the video below, then head on over to Makers’Mercantile.com to nab supplies.
