2 VINTAGE Silk Rayon Ribbon Rose Applique/Embellishments - Dk Blue/Crimson Ombre
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST!
HISTORY: Well, when one loves silk ribbon and buys from other people, one simply has to try their hand at making roses to see if the trick can be accomplished! Taking my inspiration from Elsie's Exquisiques, who sold me the silk ribbon back in the 1980s, I decided that I would make ribbon roses. Well, I made a ton of the roses way back when but I never used them in any of my creations (yep, I was a hoarder) - managing to bring them to Missouri with me when I moved from California. I have only JUST unpacked my box containing these treasures and so I offer them now........
AGE: Late 1980s
ITEM: 2 pieces - each piece a ribbon rose of vintage silk rayon picot with leaves of 100% Olive Green silk. The piece is ready to be added to a hat, turned into a pin or added to a femmy project!
HAND SEWN or GLUED: 100% hand sewn - there is no felt backing just the ribbon and a lot of stitching. It is up to the new owner to finish or not finish the back.
TIME TAKEN: Believe it or not, 1/2 hour to form and stitch each piece together.
COLOR COMBO: Dark Blue ombre - tones of dark blue, crimson flecked white and crimson.
SIZE: Each piece is approx. 1" x 3/4". Height is about 3/8" - a nice pouffy piece!
FINAL COMMENTS: American made of vintage materials and ready for use!
