Simple Ideas for Trimming

Below are a range of ribbons, cords and toggles.  Once my imagination was fired I had no shortage of ideas and as I post this blog I have further thoughts still simmering in my mind.  I've tried to be flexible in my interpretation of ribbons, cords and toggles and used fabrics beyond those I had collected and dyed.  It was useful to go back to Chapter 4: Drawing Patterns, to look again at the mackerel, herring and trout.  I deliberately set out to use untried techniques, inspired by the books of Valerie Campbell-Harding and Janet Edmonds, whose structured approach and clear prose is always so helpful.
