Default ribbon nail file case question

I love these nail file cases from Abbe designs: Monogrammed Pillow Case Style Dresses Hairbows Grosgrain Bows

I would love to make for dd's teachers. My problem is I can't figure what size ribbon it is. I have a file here and 7/8" wouldn't allow enough room to sew and 1.5" looks too big and like the file would fall out. Anyone ever done these or have any advice?

TIA!

My guess would have been 7/8" I agree with you on 1.5" does seem like it would be too wide and not hold the nail file very well.
It's a great idea, and doesn't look too hard to make
The teacher will love it!!

My guess would be 7/8 also. I think the key would be buying the correct size nail file (emery board) to fit the ribbon you're using. And of course, you have to have a REALLY steady hand for sewing (it wouldn't be easy for me!). Another option might be using a fabric that doesn't fray such as felt or fleece and just embellishing with ribbon (which in addition to being very attractive, I assume hides the foldover stitching).

Really cute - great teacher gift idea! Thanks for sharing.

You know what.... I"m thinking that is made of fabric. When she says choose your ribbon color, maybe she means that ribbon trim detail. Not sure, but just guessing...

Exactly! I haven't sewn one yet, just "outfitted" a nail file and it fits. I like the style I sent, I think it would be easier to remove the file from the holder.
