I use the 1/8" grosgrain ribbon for some of my korkers. I cut them at 2.5" for korker sets. Here are some pictures to share. I agree the satin does tend to droop a bit so I prefer the grosgrain or you can do a combo too.

How do you get the satin to be "perky"? DD is 6 months and I baked some 1/8" satin today and it is soooo floppy. I have only used grosgrain before to make full size korkers so this small size and satin is new to me.

OMGoodness! Those are so CUTE! I've never thought of just using 1/8". I usually just use them as accents, but WOW...those are too CUTE!

When I use the satin for korkers I use the 3/16 (I think) dowels and use the whole roll of ribbon (10 yds). It makes it fuller and helps it stand up more and not so droopy.

On the satin, the shorter you cut it the better it stays curled. Also spray it very heavy with hairspray before baking. Try to find the Offray brand, the others are too flimsy to start with. For pig tails or pony tails the droopy looks kind of cute. Lilago1 and JakeGigiandLolosMommy's pictures are what I was trying to get out. Those are all beautiful, they did a great job, I love the combination of sizes and colors.

Those are great examples, so pretty! I am going to try some 1/4 grosgrain and 1/8 satin tonight, thanks for all the tips. I saw Joann's has the satin (Offray I think) on sale 4 for $1 through Saturday.

I make the baby/toddler korkers also using the 1/8 inch grosgrain ribbon. They do carry it at Wal-mart in the section where you buy the whole roll, but there is limited color selection and it kind of pricey if you're going to be making a lot of them. If you are only making them for yourself and not using a whole lot of ribbon, their price is ok. But if you are going to be making them to sell, I use ribbonfactory.com. They have a lot of colors and their prices are great. The down side is that their shipping is a little high. So, not really a good source unless you need to order a lot. Upside is that if you order more than 500 yards you get a 10% discount.

I attached a picture of my little monster wearing some pink/brown ones and also another set in hot pink/lime/white.

JoAnn Fabric does have the 1/8" satin on sale 4 for $1.00, however, the 1/8" grosgrain is not on sale, but is $1.00 a roll. I thought it was because of their sign, but when I got to the register it rang up for $1.00 per spool. Hopefully it will go on sale soon, if anyone see's that it's on sale please post here.

This may be a really silly question, but I am new to this too and I was wondering if you need to spray the ribbon with water before you cook it?
