This is a ribbon that I wove this summer; I’ve stitched hook-eyes to the ends, and made it the ribbon for a scissors sheath.
Here is the entry about the ribbon and its book-mark friends, with some good close-up detail shots of the weaving.
Close-up of the hook-eye end. For those of you who are interested in things like that – it’s Gutermann 100/3 silk sewing thread, I think it’s 41 tablets (but don’t quote me on that!) in a double-face pattern I adapted from an Elizabethan portrait.
It’s a 28″ ribbon, plus the chain on the scissors sheath itself, so it hangs fairly low, and it’s easy to get over my head. It’s going to be a present, so I wanted to be sure it would hang in a place convenient to most people.
The chain twists a little too much; I may end up replacing it with a different kind of chain. The chain does need to be there (instead of having the ribbon attach directly to the sides of the sheath) because the hook-eyes bump the handles of the scissors and look wrong.
