Some people have been asking how I do my ribbon flowers. Well, I take a roll of ribbon (do not cut a length just yet) and start making a running stitch at the top of one of the edges. Leave about a foot of string on the end. Just keep doing this and occasionally pull the strings together so see how the flower is looking. If it is full enough for you, then stop, cut the ribbon and thread and pull the thread tight and tie it. Then just move it around till you get what you like. Add a button, brad or whatever you want to middle and you have your ribbon. I hope this helps.
