Default Ribbons on tees?

Hi I wanted to try some of those really cute ribbon tees but I was wondering if anyone had had a problem with the colour running in the wash? My girls are pretty heavy duty on white tees and they often need soaking or treating so I wondered if the ribbon would hold up ok?


TIA

Since I don't really make bows that often i buy most of my ribbon from the local hobby lobby so not sure of the brand, but I have washed the grosgrain ribbon hundreds of times doing nothing special, and never had any problems with color bleeding!

Safety pin for the bow or I was playing with the idea of a loop of ribbon and a hair bow would slip into the loop....but I think the metal may be uncomfortable.

I was wondering if one of those little clear snaps would work only you wouldn't be able to wear it without the bow then?

I have used ribbon from a variety of sources and have had no trouble with the dye running....

Use a pin back to put the bow on. They are in the beading section at the craft store. Just make the bow, put the center on and glue it to the pin back.

Mrsbabb just asked the same question about ribbon bleeding. She was going to do a little experiment. I wonder what the outcome was. . . . .
