Decorating Clothing with Ribbon

Here's a quick, cheap and easy way to jazz up some underwear or add a touch of class to a top.

Equipment:

  • needle
  • thread
  • ribbon
  • scissors
  • nail varnish
  • clothing to decorate

Instructions:

  1. Lay out the ribbon in a criss-cross pattern across the garment, as in the photo.
  2. At each corner, attach the ribbon to the fabric with small stitches, and tie the thread off neatly and strongly at the back.
  3. Tie the tails at the bottom into a bow and sew into place./li>

  4. Cut both ends of ribbon diagonally to a pleasing length and prevent fraying by dabbing a little clear nail varnish onto them. You could fashion small bows out of ribbon and sew them onto other places as well.

i really like this . but want to ask if only sewing at the corners will keep the ribbon secure when washing and drying?
