Book Review: 50 Ribbon Rosettes & Bows to Make

The next best thing to actually writing a book of your own is knowing someone else who is a real, live, published author! What an accomplishment to design and work thru multiple projects, write clear instructions, commit to publishing deadlines, work with an editorial staff, and plenty more.

Ribbons Rosettes review by Sew Maris

I met Deanna McCool at a sewing conference  about a year and half ago, and we hit it off right away. I just knew this lady was something special from the moment we said ‘Hi” to each other. There are loads of adjectives that could be used to describe her (smart, funny, compassionate), but the one I want to concentrate on today is talented. Her latest book, 50 Ribbon Rosettes & Bows to Make, is chock full of eye-candy to help you add a pretty bow to nearly everything in your life!

And if you consider yourself to be a bit challenged when it comes to crafting embellishments, this book will serve as a great source of both inspiration and clear-easy-to-understand instructions..

Love the bumblebees! REALLY love these!

Deanna walks you thru the entire process from start to finish. There is a full run-down on the best tools to help achieve a professional look, as well as the steps to properly fold and adhere the ribbons to any kind of base. I particularly like the skill level and size of finished bow information that is listed right at the top of every instructional process. Helpful!

Wouldn’t 50 Ribbon Rosettes & Bows to Make be a delightful addition to your home library?

Happy sewing!
