Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    With the 1-1/2 inch ribbon, create 4 Bows-In-A-Row: Cut about three times the length of the finished trim. For each bow, make a knife pleat that is two-thirds the ribbon width and stitch across the width of the ribbon. Fold the loop you just made into three even pleats and tack together at the center on the right side of the ribbon. Spread the pleats at the edges and tack the corners of the outer pleats to the base. The corners will not reach all the way to the edge of the base but will curve in a bit. Leave 1/2 RW between bows.
  • 2
    Cut 1/2 inch incisions on either side of the sewn folded ribbon bows. Make cuts centered on width of the ribbon.
  • 3
    Shape ends with scissors to a shape you like about 3/4 inch from the last bow section on either end.
  • 4
    Seal ends.
  • 5
    Set aside.
  • 6
    Create a braid (like one in your hair) approximately 6 inch long in your 3/8 inch ribbon color.
  • 7
    Leave or tie tails of 11 inches on either braid end.
  • 8
    Weave your finished braid through incisions made earlier in base ribbon. Tie around wrist.
