You are invited to join the Ribbon project. There is no fee - all you need to do is create and display a Ribbon. You will have then joined with others around the world in creating and thinking in terms of care and protection of the earth and its inhabitants.
How to make a Ribbon panel
- Cut a panel of sturdy cloth, double thickness, of any color, finished size one meter by a half meter (or one yard by a half yard).
- Sew several rows of stitching as a border on all four sides to give the panel strength. Sew 20cm or 9 inch pieces of ribbon or bias tape to each corner so the panels may be easily tied together.
- On this panel sew, paint, write, embroider, applique, weave, knit, tie-dye or use any other kind of ornaments to express what you most love about the world and want to protect from what is endangered on this earth.
- Write your name, address and any message on the back of the panel.
