This stunning ribbon accessory looks complex, but is actually very easy to make! Based on a 1920s ribbon work technique, this eye-catching ribbon star, also called a cockade, is perfect for wearing (in its smaller size) or for hanging as an ornament (in its larger sizes). Please note this is NOT an actual book, but an electronic document that will be sent to your e-mail account as a PDF file.
You'll learn how to make the ribbon star in different sizes, and how to add a button. The tutorial gives suggestions for using your finished piece as an ornament or as a necklace pendant. There are complete step-by-step instructions and 40 photographs.
This pattern is extremely versatile, because you can use these flowers for several other applications - by themselves to add to packages, as hat or hair accessories, and as embellishments on coats, purses and belts.
This pattern is for a beginner! The ornament is easy to do because it's has repetitive steps, but be prepared to spend an hour or more from start to finish. It's a perfect portable project to do while you're a passenger in a car, or in front of the TV.
