Ribbon Blanket and Block tutorial and another Great Giveaway!!!

Go on over to Moda Bake Shop to check out my new tutorial for this Ribbon Blanket and Block.

They are fast and easy! Or if you just plain like it but don't want to make one, go check out my etsy shop!


And to celebrate another finished project for Moda I thought it was time for a little giveaway! Soooooo here is what is included in this giveaway.


- A Charm pack of Hushabye (used in project above) by Tula Pink!

- A Charm pack of Odyssea by MoMo. (Would work great for a little boy Ribbon Blanket and Block.)

Thanks for the quick baby gift idea! Now I have a way to use up some of my scrap Minkee!

Silent Company said...

I really love the tutorial over at MODA! Very cute! Oh, and I am subscribed too!

Heather said...

I love these. Very cute. Just a heads up, I had made some and had them for sale on ebay {may have been the 1st mistake} and the lising was removed due to copyright issues.

Seems a company out there 'owns the rights' to make things like this with the ribbons. I called mine tags, and I think that's what tipped them off. The company's name is Taggies.

I just wanted to share. These really are adorable. Good luck them in your shop. :)

Cami said...

Good work Nicole! So cute! I am still looking for the recipe. I think I have lost mine. I think I shared it with Felicia. I will track it down and send it to you. No worries.
