How cool, that is one I haven't seen! Many yrs ago when HG first started we use to have contest to come up with new ribbon art, back then Tonya and Leatrice were member and two of the most talented woman I had ever seen. It was amazing how many totally different ideas people would come up with! One of the contest was for a sailboat you would not think you could get a couple of dz totally different sailboats, I think Miranda won that one. I can't wait to see the bikes people come up with!

I am thinking on it, if I end up with anything that resembles decent I will update you. I haven't really tried to pull the ideas from my head to put to ribbon yet, but so far in my head I am playing with the idea of buttons for wheels.

I tried and this is what I came up with. As a first attmpt it's not terrible (not great either) but if you tweaked it it could be nice. Maybe use 1/4" ribbon instead of 3/8" or do similar to that but no 3D...have fun figuring it out. Let us know how yours turns out!!

I think a penny-farthing made with buttons would look cute too

Ok I took 4-custom-dressed-kids' idea of the buttons and this is what I came up with. I matched the colors to the colors of her bike. This little girl rides her BMX in races!
The picture is terrible but let me know what you think! Any advice?!
