I'm storing a lot of old linen on our attic. Mostly old handwoven bed sheets from my grandmother and my great grandmother. This linen is surely more than hundred years old and it's perfect for working old samplers in a higher count on it.
Just I was looking for some linen for a new project and discovered a lot of old embroidered ribbons I didn't know.
They have a funny antique spelling for a lot of clothes, like underwear, stockings, dustcloth, bed jackets, towels, shirts, ..........etc.
I really like them and now I'm looking for an idea to display them.

I love reading your blog. There is always something interesting to enjoy :>) How wonderful to have these old family linen. A perfect fabric for old samplers. The ribbons are such a treasure trove. I understand why you want to do something special with them.
I'm sure you know this website:

Yuko does such wonderful things with old vintage linen and trimmings. It might give you some ideas. The book she has made features old ribbon similar to yours :>)

Perhaps you can create an old sampler book like the young girls used to make in the orphanages. i have one full of tiny parts of clothes, sleeves and cuffs showing pleating and pintucks, smocking, buttonhole stitch, darning and other things.

I will wait with great anticipation to see what inspiration you have.
Best wishes Angela
