The Ribbon's Bow tutorial
I was always scaring of making the ribbon's bows. But, I noticed, that I was scared needlessly. I will show you the bow, which is nice and easy like a piece of cake :-)
Use 1,6 cm/ 0.6 inches width ribbon in light pink color and cut 25 pieces of 11 cm/4.3 inches lenght.
Now you will take a longer needle with tiny “eye” and pull the thread through it, use double thread and make a big, strong knot about 8 cm / 3.1 inches from the end. Then take one small piece of ribbon, fold it in the half and insert the needle through the ribbon, like you see on the picture below. Let it into the needle and continue with another ribbon pieces by same way.
When you will have all ribbons on the needle, then pull them on the thread and make a strong knot (I made 3 knots, for sure :-) ).
Tadaaaah, your ribbon's bow is finished :-)
The size of my ribbon bow is 9 cm width and it is enough for my wreath. But you could use another ribbons, different width and any number of ribbon's pieces, what you like most.
Now take your wreath, you made last time and sew the ribbon's bow in the middle of the wreath. Use common sewing thread.
Continue tommorrow with The Wicker Heart :-)
