Friday's Flower - Ric Rac

Welcome back everyone to Friday's Flower and today we are going to make a flower using Ric Rac ribbon.  I recommend using May Arts ribbon because you can get the 1 inch and they come in various sizes and colors and the material is excellent quality.   Today flower is super fun, super cute and best of all super fast!  I will also make a youtube video of this flower as well.

Supplies Needed:
Needle & Thread
Embellie (Center)

 Step 1: You want to line up the loops so that it is even and then either sew or burn the edges together
 Basically you will end up with it looking like the image below
 
and you will have a complete closed circle of ribbon
 Step 2: Now you are going to sew or weave the thread - Notice where I am point the needle on the left side of the first weave - this important as you will repeat these steps
 See where I am sticking the needle for the second entry - now you will repeat these step on each downward facing loop.  The ric rac ribbon basically loops up and then down - you want to sew on each side of the downward loop 
 Complete this all the way around and it ends up looking like the image below - notice how it is stitched or where the entry points are located
Step 3: Now you will pull the string - it starts gathering and forming loops as you pull
Once totally done  it will look like this - you want to arrange and position the loops 
  This is what the bottom looks like - you actually can get 2 totally different looks
 Add a center and this is your complete flower
Turn it over and now this is another completed flower - simple right!!
This is the opposite just in pink - it is a little easier to see the difference in looks with the pink - I like this look the best
Hope everyone enjoyed come back to see how to make these gorgeous present bows using May Arts ribbon!!
