When I first started making these I found a sketch type tutorial with drawings on how to fold the ribbon that was really helpful, but now I can't find it.

This is just how I do it though:

Only I don't cut off all the excess ribbon at the bottom, I just cut the size I need to begin with, heat seal it, fold it, and put it on the needle.

Let me know if you guys have any questions. I love making these and they've been huge sellers both on etsy and at craft shows.

Thanks for the link - I will have to try it like that. The other way looks cute, but it's a lot of sewing!

And, your clip is adorable
