How to: Make Silk Ribbon Rosettes

How to: Make Silk Ribbon Rosettes

This week I'm sharing a series of DIY projects using ribbon from the nice folks at Midori Ribbon. You can check out the first three projects here. A today, I'm embellishing a chevron pillow cover with beautiful pink ribbon!
 When I saw Midori's Silk Dupioni ribbon, I knew it would make beautiful rosettes. The ribbon itself has a lot of texture and movement, and it was easy to work into a rosette. I plan to use the pillow as an accent pillow in my daughter Ayla's bedroom, as the colors and feel of the pillow pair well with the color palette of her bedroom. Below are the supplies I used and the steps I followed:

- Cinch ribbon together, keeping the needle threaded. Roll the ribbon inward to create a rosette shape. Once the rosette is in place, use your needle and thread to hold it together.
