Big sigh of relief.
I have internet access and a working telephone. Whew. I was starting to think I would need an intervention if I didn't get some access to the outside world soon!
On to today's post...I've had ragamuffin on the brain lately.
You've all probably seen the luscious, dreamy, fabulous Ragamuffin Garlands that The Nester makes. They make my heart go pitter patter.
When I was on vacation, I saw a different take on the concept in that frou-frou decorator shop that I told you about when I made my seashell garlands. The designer ragamuffined (now it's a verb) a handbag using ribbon instead of fabric.
So here's my take on it.
What would you call it? The Ribbon-muffin Basket? Wouldn't it be adorable on a little girl's dresser to hold her barrettes and hair thingys? I think it looks like a glorious pink muppet-flower.
If you want to make one, get yourself a big old bunch of ribbon. Any colors will do. Cut as many pieces as you think you'll need. Then double it. :-) Start tying pieces of ribbon onto the basket and keep going until your hands are numb and your fingers are bloody. Then tie on a few more pieces.
