Venus Ribbon Guest Giveaway CLOSED

June 9, 2010


Whenever I walk into my favorite fabric store I love to see what new ribbon inventory they have in stock.
I love striped, velvet and especially Grosgrain.

The embellishments you can use for ribbons are endless!

Especially when you have the kind of selection that Venus Ribbon offers.

If you have a project or piece of clothing that could use a little punch of pattern, take a look at Venus Ribbon and you could win one free 10 Yard spool of your choice from their online store.

To enter either:
Please visit www.venusribbon.com and leave a comment on this post with your favorite pattern and what you would make with the ribbon.

oh my goodness!What a selection...I would choose the Preppy Turtle Jacquard ribbon to decorate our summer picnic basket:)Thanks for the chance to win!

Rebecca said... Best Blogger Tips

I would get the white/navy or cream/navy stripe and make a belt.

Casey said... Best Blogger Tips

I really like the reversible jumbo dots in pink/red! I would use it for some type of wall hanging for my girls room or maybe for jazzing up curtains in their room

Samina said... Best Blogger Tips

I didn't have to scroll too far! I really like their daisy grosgrain ribbon. I'd pick the tutti frutti color.

Ashley @ Ashley's Craft Corner said... Best Blogger Tips

I love the selection! If I could choose anything it would either be the Mod SF Satin in White/Cranberry, white cherries, candy dots in white/red or red glitter iron-on ric rac. I would either accent a skirt for my daughter (with matching bow) or use the ribbon to accent some aprons.

Jill said... Best Blogger Tips

I am loving the black and white striped grosgrain. I think I would use it in my boys' room. It has baby blue-ish walls that we made more "manly" by using black and white accents.

sy said... Best Blogger Tips

i love the Reversible Polka Dot ribbon, i would use it for gift wrapping.

Monica said... Best Blogger Tips

Decisions, decisions, decisions. I could just eat up the cupcake grosgrain ribbon. The possibilities are endless.....

Angela said... Best Blogger Tips

What if I have, like, 17 favorites?!

SewLindAnn said... Best Blogger Tips

I just spent a long while browsing the ribbons and trim. My favorites were the Reversible stripe polka dot in b&w and Split Pea grosgrain. I'm thinking of using ribbons as an embellishment ruffle on sewn items. Like a tissue holder I want to make as gifts for my tennis team.I'd love for them to make a pretty tennis themed section.

Lindsay said... Best Blogger Tips

I love all of the polka dot and striped ribbons. How cute!

SewLindAnn said... Best Blogger Tips

I'm happily on their mailing list.

I thought toile ribbon was cute!!!

Soggy Cereal Mom said... Best Blogger Tips

Pretty! I love the Stripes Pastel SF Satin Ribbon and the Toile Grosgrain Ribbon. I'm planning a Paris themed party for my daughter's birthday and I think these would be so sweet as hairbow favors.

Miss C said... Best Blogger Tips

I would have to choose a color in the velvet ribbon to trim the new Colette pattern set of the bralette and shorts! There are so many great choices on here though!

VERONICA said... Best Blogger Tips

I am new to sewing and never realised there were sooooo many options! Loved all of the ribbons and ric rac especially the pin dot blue and brown grosgain. Thanks

Emily said... Best Blogger Tips

Pretty! I'd use the striped SF Satin ribbon in purple to trim a skirt.

bboutique said... Best Blogger Tips

the reverse paisley ribbon is darling!

Melissa said... Best Blogger Tips

almost impossible to choose. But if you force me to, I would pick the retro stripe!

Sade said... Best Blogger Tips

I can't decide, but my two favorites at the moment are the Retro Rock, and I would use it to trim a plain skirt, and the Bright Flower Grosgrain in Turquoise, that I would just drape around because it's so happy.

Cory said... Best Blogger Tips

i would use it to add something fun to kitchen towels

Tart Deco said... Best Blogger Tips

This was a hard one, but I would go with the Jolly Stripes Grosgrain Ribbon (Tutti Fruitti) and make a bunch of hair accessories, like clips or trim on a mini top hat.

Danelle said... Best Blogger Tips

I love making hairbows for my daughter, & the cupcake ribbon would make the cutest bow! I also like the jolly stripes ribbon for a Christmas bow.

Danelle said... Best Blogger Tips

I also added Veuns Ribbon as a friend on facebook. (Didn't see the option to become a fan, just a friend request?)

Sara said... Best Blogger Tips

I like the dots, especially the reversible jumbo dots.

Teri said... Best Blogger Tips

The Jumbo dots for a headband and a belt!

Kalen said... Best Blogger Tips

I like the pin dot polkadot in navy grosgrain ribbon. Not sure what I'd use it on, but perhaps to make reusable gift bag ties. Such a pretty, earth friendly way to give gifts.

CraftyMummy said... Best Blogger Tips

I love the reversible stripe dot ribbon - great for crafting! I'd use it on bags probably...

Virginia said... Best Blogger Tips

I love the reversible polka dot to make hair ribbons for my daughter. I also love the zebra grossgrain. I'm thinking that I'd add it to a dress for my daughter. I had fun looking at their site! Thanks for the intro!

Tara said... Best Blogger Tips

I think I would pick a polka dot in cream or red to go on pillows in my soon-to-be-renovated living room!

Jo - To a Pretty Life said... Best Blogger Tips

As much as I love polkadots and stripes, I'd have to go with the 1 1/2" Geometric Jacquard in Lime/Turquoise. Just because it's so pretty! I have no idea what I would do with it though.

Jennifer S. said... Best Blogger Tips

M first instinct is the gold grosgrain ribbon (under weddings) It would be the inspiration and crowning glory on a cranberry dress... but ten I think Polka dots! In any case, I would need to make a whole dress to compliment the ribbon.

jennifer said... Best Blogger Tips

my goodness...i want them all so many neat things to do with them!! Thanks

Amber said... Best Blogger Tips

LOVE the Mini Cherries Grosgrain! It would be darling in my kitchen. I want to put it on some pretty kitchen towels. OOoo! I could use it on my little chandelier lampshades too! Too cute!

lin3arossa said... Best Blogger Tips

My favorite is the Reversible Double Heart Grosgrain Ribbon and I would trim tons of the garments I sew for my daughter with it.

Pittsburgh Perambulations said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi. I won your cherry pop refashion frock giveaway some time ago and I never received the dress. I emailed your winners address a few weeks ago to inquire about it and never heard back. I was wondering if I was still going to receive the dress? You can email me at pghperambulations at gmail dot com. Thanks.

Camila F. said... Best Blogger Tips

Julia said... Best Blogger Tips

Wow that's almost too many choices! I love all the striped grosgrains and velvets, but I think my favourite is the 7/8" Flowers Galore Jacquard in green. I'd love to trim some cushions, or maybe if I'm ambitious, a summer top.

Sourkraut said... Best Blogger Tips

Oh my! So many goodies to choose from! I'd have to go with the Dyno Mite Grosgrain Ribbon. It was a tough decision, though, as they're all so lovely.

Amy Lynn said... Best Blogger Tips

Oh my, how is one to choose??? I love the floral reversible jacquard ribbon in that pale green and aqua color. But I think my choice would be for some of that gorgeous velvet ribbon to trim some of my fall projects that I am planning for my daughter's outfits.
They would be the perfect addition!

debbiekl said... Best Blogger Tips

I like the Retro Stripe Grosgrain Ribbon in Lt. Brown Multi. Thanks!

Rachel said... Best Blogger Tips

Wow. Thanks for the info on this place. I love ribbons and didn't know about Venus. I'd have to go for the puppy print grograin to decorate a dog bed I'm making for my puppy. Admittedly the glitter iron trim is enticing as well . . .

Andi said... Best Blogger Tips

What beautiful ribbons! I like the moss green Bandana SF Satin Ribbon. I think it would be cute as straps on a little girls sun dress.

Aly said... Best Blogger Tips

so hard to choose! jester pink and red grosgrain, and the pink and black houndstooth is a close second. what would I make? hairbows, embellish a little girl skirt...

Ooooh! Such pretty ribbons! I love them all, but right now the one that grabbed my attention the most was the brown striped satin ribbon (Chocolate Factory). Yummy! It really makes me want some chocolate! I would use it to make so many things. I have some ribbon bookmarks I am working on right now and it would be perfect for those!

At the moment my choice would be the groovy peace grosgrain ribbon. I just embroidered my niece some jeans with a flower power VW bug on them. I would add some of this ribbon the pockets and then make her some groovy hairbows to go with the the outfit.
