For all you ribbon lovers, this month over at Fantastic Ribbons the DT are sharing their "Sew it Up" projects throughout October.
There is not a patterned paper in sight, its amazing what a little ribbon (and green dot washi tape) can do.

With a few birthdays on the horizon the orange looked beautifully bright on these cards too.
I've tried to illustrate in the photos below how I made these little polka dot bows. I hope it helps.
1. Take two stripes of ribbon approx 2" in length. 2. Shape each end on one of the lengths. 3. With the other length fold each end under to meet in the middle and hold it down with some double sided tape. 4. Take another small section of tape and adhere the folded ribbon onto the straight ribbon. 5. Place the bows on your card or paper and line up under your sewing machine 6. A single length of stitching down the middle holds the bows firmly in place. Finish with a little pearly on top.
I got a little carried away with these cute little bows.
Thanks for stopping by, have fun making your own little bows and stitching on your ribbon.
