I am in the process of making beautiful quilted christmas stockings and I want to personalize with the person's name on the top of the stocking. I had planned to use silk ribbon (i have not used this before) since i love the beauty of the ribbon but am finding it difficult for the fabric i have chosen (a plush velvet). I want something really rich lush looking. I know this is a quilting site I am just hoping someone knows the answer. Thank you in advance :) Jeanie/BC Canada
How about some shiny gold cording? It should be flexible enough to shape into letters and easily sewn to the velvet. (Welcome to QCA!)
Hi Willow it is nice to meet you. I'm not sure about the velvet, but the gold cord idea sounds good to me.
Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love
I think the gold cording along with some beading would really make it "BLING".
