Simple Ribbon Flower Tutorial

Brrr! The snow is here in Utah. I may be staying indoors and crafting a bit more now.  This is good and bad- I love making stuff, but geez, I miss my sunny fall weather already!

I've been experimenting with my ribbon and have come up with a way to make some super easy flowers!  Keep reading to find out how I made them. 

Materials: small strip of ribbon, thread, needle, and scissors


Step1.  Sew wide up and down stitches along the edge of the length of the ribbon.

Step 2.  Gently pull thread to gather ribbon.

Step 3.  Join both sides of the ribbon

Have fun and try different ribbons!  You can even layer several lengths of ribbon on top of each other to make a puffier flower.

This red lacy one here I may be using for something for Christmas!
