Delicate embellishments are a classic way to spruce up just about anything. I remember having tiny pink ribbon roses on my favorite pinafore when I was young, and the dainty trend is retuning in a big way.
Wide wired ribbon, about 1′
Thin ribbon, about 2′
Large eye needle

Thread a large eye needle with the narrow ribbon. Don’t knot it, just hold it in the needle with your fingers. Then run the whipstitch through a larger ribbon with a wired edge. Don’t worry about making a good even stitch, un-even and crooked whipstitching will make an interesting flower too. Then scrunch the wide ribbon down into a rose. To hold it all together, tightly knot the thin ribbon on the back side of the rosette. Beyond easy.

  1. Thanks for posting this Brookelynn. This would look good hot glued on a barrette, or as a brooch. That ribbon with the blue color gradient works really well for this.

  2. This would be very pretty to dangle down from the shoulders or waist -especially for a lovely summer dress.
    I’ll try it out with some of my outfits.
    Thanks for the great idea!
