So Artful Challenge #5 - Here comes spring

It's time for a new So Artful Challenge - this time the theme is Here comes Spring and the colors are green, blue, pink. I was inspired by the lovely inspiration pictures full of flowers and decided to make an eye-glasses holder.
It's made from various ribbons - from velvet, through gross grain to silk - so it has a lovely texture. The ribbons are adhered to a piece of fabric using Heat'n Bond Lite iron-on adhesive. Be careful when ironing different kinds of fabrics - I ironed them through a piece of cotton.. Then I added a layer of bating for protection and lined it with pink batiste. Flower is made from a wide satin ribbon and adhered with hot glue to the case.
