Default My First Hair Streamer with Help from a HG!

This is my first hairbow streamer. I made it for my daughter to match her gymnastic team. I enlisted the help of a fellow HG - ByFranToo. Fran was great to work with. She did the embroidery and I love how it turned out. She is great to work with and super fast (great prices too). Let me know what you think. I do know I need to make my ends better.

The embroidery is gorgeous ~ love it

As for the streamers, I usually stagger the lengths of ribbon so that they create a cascading effect. I can't really tell if yours were cut that way or not (they look all the same length to me). Also, how are the ends cut? Are they pinked? I usually cut them at a slight angle and heat seal.

I like it. I have never seen the red zebra other than on ribbon sites. I like it. May have to get some.

I think that is super cute! I agree that it will look a little bit better if you stagger your lengths and angle or v cut your ends. Good job for your first time too!!!

Thanks ladies! I staggered a little. I cut the ends straight and heat sealed with a lighter. I am going to try to cut them slanted with a woodburner. I do not like the lighter because I always melt the ends.

Did you cut them with pinking shears? It almost looks like they are scalloped, which is kind of cool.
