New Crafty Supplies

On a recent trip to Vicenza, I spotted a little sewing shop with a sign I couldn't resist...50% OFF! Even though I can only sew a little, I still managed to walk out with 40 euro (remember 1/2 off, so really 80!) of ribbon, along some wooden beads & a few buttons. I got one or two meters of this and that, with no idea what in the world I'll do with this stuff. I just couldn't resist these funky, vintage ribbons. The shop owner said most of what I chose was in the store 10 years ago when they took it over. Even hula girls! How cute! I also got this beautiful lace trim, which I will probably use somehow in a jewelry design.
I welcome any suggestions as to what I should do with these pretties. Or perhaps some fellow Etsian would be able to create something for me?

oh-gosh--I know what I'd do with them! they would make adorable pouches, cuffs, or children's clothing, even women's clothing or accessories.

They are so lovely and sweet! Lace you can use for gift wrapping, too. How about making your own greeting cards with ribbon embellishments? Hmmm... there are so many choices, really.

I love the hula girls! They would look fab on the bottom of a bag or skirt! Aah, I'm jealous of your stash! ;)

Super funky coolio. They look great all grouped together for the photo. Maybe you could use them on a jacket or spruce up an umbrella? Lots of fun possibilities!

Alrighty Miss Amy! I would die to see those used on 50's style aprons! Especially some of the very funky vintage looking ribbons. If you ever make anything like that I want an e-mail and I'll be your first order! :)
