Jednoduchý návod jak si vyrobit textilní stuhu např. na převázání deky, kterou chcete darovat. Inspirací mi byla knížka Zakka Style, ale k výrobě jsem zvolila trochu jiný postup - jednodušší a rychlejší.
Here's simple tutorial how to make fabric ribbon. It might be good to use for giving a quilt, it'll make nice finish to it. I got inspired by the book Zakka style but I have used easier quicker way.
I used the fabric which will be also used for the quilt. I cut of the selvage edge. These are not designers fabric so there is no name or other prints on it. The ribbon is not the same from both sides. I use the basic one color piece as back so I didn't cut it and left it long as back side. Cut the front fabrics in different length and mix it together.
Sew the front strips together. Sometimes I sew only straight edges, sometimes I put it 90 degrees - not sure what the right term is. See pics below. There is only one rule! Selvage edge on one side, raw edge on the other. Trim the seam allowance where needed.
Sew together with the one color piece (back side) and make one long circle. Place the right sides together and sew along the raw edge. Square off the ends of strips. Turn. Now you have the right sides facing up. Sew the folded ribbon together with zig zag or other decorative stitches. You are done. Quick and easy. No need to use the iron and play with those seams. Be a lazy one and do it my way :-)
