Swistraw - a vintage craft. Found these items at a thrift store, too.
I LOVE the cover of this booklet.
Swistraw And The Studio Twelve Looms:
Some of the Swistraw ribbon, a Studio Twelve loom and a few flowers:
And here's another booklet:
Skeins of ribbon in pretty colors:
Bright and lovely:
Have yourself a colorful day, won't you?

Heidi, I LOVE this. I remember these from when I was a kid. I have a flower loom now that is similar, but I've only used yard to make flowers. I'll have to keep my eyes open for some of the vintage straw.

Those are too adorable! Great find!

I posted a review of the Deran lampshade b.t.w., in case you're interested! The shape is great for vintage lamps.
