Our ribbon combo of the day shouts summer! Bright sunlit days, resting on the porch, warm twilight evenings, hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill. Can you say Picnic? In today’s combo, glittering red polka dots, bright moss green gingham, and ladybug check join together, jetting off to Iowa. “Dots In A Line”, “Great Gingham Moss”, and “Ladybug Check”: a perky and cheery summer combo!
Bringing the sparkle is “Dots In A Line”, with red glitter dots lining up in the center, edged with a red and white striped pattern on white faux linen. As this combo shows, the pattern shines for summer projects and, of course, Christmas!
Don’t all good summer designs need a check? One of our extensive collection of gingham offerings, “Great Gingham Moss”, with bright green and white, comes in two widths. There’s the 2 1/2″ used in today’s combo plus a 1 1/2″ width. You can choose 3 yard increments or ten yard lengths.
Bringing this trio together is the always stately but fun, Lady Bug, a 2 1/2″ wide satin ribbon (made in the U.S.). She contrasts nicely on her green checked field, don’t you think?
Spring brings thoughts of warm weather, being outside and hearing birds sing again. Maybe that’s why two of top weekly ribbons, “Bug’s Life” and “Peacock Feather” caught our visitors’ eyes. Let’s see what other items made up the rest of this week’s most viewed and liked!
#5. Pigskin Football Ribbon
It may have been March Madness for basketball, but our football lace ribbon print was a favorite. The 2 1/2″ width in a three yard length won the race this week, but also playing hard were the ten yard roll and the 1 1/2″ width in 3 yards and a ten yard roll.
#4. “Bug’s Day”
Yes, it’s spring and all those critters are coming out of their winter hiding places. Dragonflies are joined by their friends, lady bugs, bees and beetles.
#3. Teal Ombre
Ombre ribbons transition between colors, making them the go-to choice of ribbon flower crafters. The soft blending of colors in “Teal” evoke the ocean and coordinate nicely with “Peacock Feather”, Dark Teal “Anisha” and “Gelato” in Celadon. Teal ombre comes on 3 yard roll as well a cost effective 25 yard roll.
#2. Navy Burlap
#1. Peacock Feather
At the top of the weekly top five ribbons, this week: Gorgeous satin peacock feather print, 1 1/2″ wide, made in the US by Offray Lion Ribbon.

Santa Claus has arrived with a bag full of Christmas ribbons, yet he couldn’t fit in the whole assortment you’ll find in our Etsy shop. He selected a group of newly arrived ribbons and tossed in a few long time favorites. There’s plenty of sparkle with glittered ribbons, country flair with plaids and checks, sophisticated and fancy taffeta and elegant prints. Santa’s quite proud of inspiring four different “Ho, Ho, Ho” ribbons and had to include those! Visit our Christmas and Holiday Ribbon page to see more or head over to our Etsy shop.
From the left, reading down, there’s Ho, Ho, Ho (7/8″), Noel Plaid Taffeta, Sheer Red Holiday Elegance, Woods Plaid in Red and Green, Lime Green Swirl Sheer (2 1/2″)

Fall plaids – the essence of autumnal beauty
Looking for an all-around fall plaid ribbon for your creations and decorating? Boasting a color scheme taken from a crisp wind-swept pile of fall leaves, “Fall Spice” can add the finishing garnish whatever your project or occasion. Pumpkin Orange, Olive Green, Oak Yellow and Cranberry Red make a classic fall combination. Try it when you want to create a warm fall atmosphere in your home or for creating any number of projects, whether it’s for
Back to school • Autumn • Harvest • Halloween • Thanksgiving
Three versions to choose from make “Fall Spice” even more versatile. Choose the 1 1/2″ width (#9) for smaller projects or to combine with two or more ribbons for a lush style. Use the 2 1/2″ width (#40) for larger wreaths and garland bows. The orange center striped version features the bonus of two ribbons in one. For even more drama, pair it with simple patterns or coordinating solid colors.
I’m excited about our new, limited quantity addition to the Cottage Ribbon Shop. Biarritz is a lighter weight yet full-bodied taffeta ribbon. A lightly wired edge will keep bows, bouquets and ribbon flourishes in place and looking fresh and crisp. Brides and wreath makers won’t have to worry about their carefully arranged bows drooping or losing shape. The texture features a horizontal weave (think grosgrain without the rigidity). The sheen creates highlights and shadows as the ribbon is shaped. The five colors offered – Eggplant Purple, Citrus Green, Dark Pewter Grey, Ruby Red and Black are perfect for fall holidays, events and Christmas.
Biarritz – A Perfect Companion!
A number of other ribbons we carry coordinate and complement Biarritz. For shine, try Contessa (wired) or Double Faced Satin. Options is an unwired sheer and Prelude, a wired semi-sheer. For a more rustic touch, try a narrow Burlap. Use with a Plaid for a sporty or traditional look. Floral prints added to a solid help to unify colors in a wreath or floral arrangement.
Biarritz – A Perfect Price!
At $6.95 for a ten yard roll, it’s affordable even when you need larger quantities. It’s a perfect price when you add a note to your Etsy order requesting the “Biarritz10” discount. You’ll receive an automatic refund of $1.00 off each roll of Biarritz ordered from now until July 31!
