Default how to make streamers?

ok ladies, i just discoverd this board and let me say yall rock! i have been looking all day, i have a question on the streamers. (please note i have no crafting skills) yall say that you sew the ribbon and then attach it to the elastic hair thing, how do i sew it, i don't have a sewing machine and i don't know how to sew. do you just sew with a needle and thread onto the elastic? i told ya i was not crafty! thanks again if anybody can help me, i am gonna try to make the button pony o's tomorrow, i had no idea it was that easy, and just thought i would try these too, since i sick of buying them! heather

You can use just a needle and thread. You could also glue them and cinch them in the middle with the thread then take your needle and go through the streamers and the pony o then wrap it around both again. I hope I'm not being confusing. After it is attached you put your knot on it.

I personally sew my ribbons together first, then attach them to the
pony 0. Try that and see how it goes,
hope this helps some,

thank you for your answers! but i have a question, i sew the ribbons together, in the middle, like put the needle and thread through it and sew how many times and then what do i do with the thread? i am sorry i sound soo dumb, but i am clueless here, but i really think i could do this... thanks again everyone! btw i just bought some on ebay and it looks like hers are glued, is that easier and does it hold up as well?

You do not put the needle through the pony. I usually sew the ribbon together and then take the thread while still attached to the needle and wrap it around the pony a few times good and tight and then back through the ribbon and then tie it off. Once it is tied off I use ribbon to wrap around the ribbon and pony where I sewed it together. Glue the ribbon with E6000. Use a clip to hold the ribbon in place while it dries.
