Shell Sheets



I just got a note from my customer, Jeanette Scarola of Hip Dragonfly, who had ordered my Shells ribbon in aqua to trim custom monogrammed sheets.  She sent me these photos, along with her very helpful ribbon sewing tips, which I quote here.


"This is Jeannette Scarola, from www.hipdragonfly.com, I didn't realize that you had an etsy store front, so do I, I want to forward you the pics. of this finished sheet order set for which I used your beautiful ribbon.

I applied the trim: w/the teflon sewing foot; using mettler poly sheen thread; needle #11; stitch length 2.50; machine tension on #1, do not iron the trim w/steam, just press w/cloth. Hope this info is beneficial for your other customers."

I am always grateful to customers who send photos of things to make with ribbon.  I am happy, with permission, to publish them here, so please let me know when you make something wonderful!

Thanks, Jeanette!
