Ever change your mind on what ribbon you would like to use or find that the tube you made for the drawstring is too small to run the safety pin through? Thread a large needle with your ribbon and run the eye of the needle through the hole you left, then through the tube. Push your needle eye first around the tube coming out in the hole where you started. It solves the seam folded the wrong way problem, also, as it will push through or work its way under much easier than a safety pin. This method sure saves me a lot of ripping and starting over.
