Social Isolation…

Hey guys! Halley, the designer of The Black Ribbon here. We’ve been on a social isolation lockdown in our local area officially since 3/17/20. How has this affected us? Well I stocked up on sewing supplies from my favorite local small fabric shop: https://califabrics.com/ (please support them through their online shop in this down time), and messaged our factory to see where this left our upcoming release “Blushing Swan” and checked to make sure the post office would still be open. So with all of that here we are. Settling in for the long haul and prepared to continue sewing up new items for the webshop and listing them to sell directly to you. We are ship ONLY at this time, no local pick up.

To help entertain you while you’re all cooped up though we’ve started including a small sewing kit to make your own headbow in all orders over 25.00. We will absolutely do our best to ensure the materials match your order.  We also published our first tutorial video on how to make the bow using hand sewing techniques:

Full instructions on how to make your own are included even if you do not have your own kit. Here’s a small list of things you need to make your own:

  • Cotton fabric (Big section is 7.5″ x 7″, small section is 5.5″ x 6.5″ and middle is 2.5″ x 4.5″)
  • Scissors
  • Needle and thread (try to match your fabric and trim)
  • Ruler
  • Some pins
  • Alligator clip or headband
  • Lace trim (fully optional)
  • Iron and ironing board
  • Chopstick

We’ll be releasing a machine sewn video soon!
