First, you will cut your ribbons into 4 inch lengths.
My project used nine of each style.
I used the fabric glue and glued just the tips together
to create loops in the ribbons. After they had
dried for about 10 minutes, I started applying them to the purse.
I turned the purse inside out. It is a skirt shaped purse, so there is an inside hem that is just like a real skirt. This is where I applied the fabric glue and started placing the ribbon loops. You can see from the pictures that I tried to keep the bottoms of the ribbon fairly even.
After I applied all of the ribbon loops using noting but fabric glue, this is what it looked like...
This is the purse turned inside out. all the "ugliness" will be hidden once
it is turned the right way.
I did go through and make sure that each individual ribbon
had a good glue seal.
You CAN reinforce it with a quick stitch, but I never do.
The fabric glue is FANTASTIC stuff.
And since it is not actual clothing...
the glue alone is good enough for me! LOL
Once it was all glued, I added a bit of zebra print fabric using
Wunder Under just to accent the pockets and
The perfect accessory!
Now, of course, I could add bling, more ribbon, and all kinds of goodies...
but Skye is just a plain Jane kinda girl, and loved it
JUST LIKE THIS!
