I'm working on these today (thanks for the link!), but I agree... too much sewing for $4 a clip! They are turning out cute. I'm thinking at least $5.

Hey there,

That's my clip you linked to. :-) I was wondering why I had so many hits on that one flower and then I thought, I bet those hipgirls are talking about it. Love you guys!

I actually don't fold my ribbon the way in the tutorial that someone here posted. I do it a bit differently and my way seems so much easier. I only charge $4 for these clips because they only take me about 5 minutes to make and don't require much ribbon. I don't have to glue them at all either, it's all in the way they're folded. I'll take a look around tomorrow and see if I can find the link that I used to figure out the fold. Once I got the hang of the fold, they became super easy. I do sew them together the same way as in the tutorial though. Like I fold one petal, put it on the threaded needle, then put on the next petal until all 5 are on the needle and then pull the thread through all at once and tie it super tight...and then put in a couple of stitches just to make sure it's secure. I use thick crochet thread too, I don't think it would stay very well with regular sewing thread.

Anyway, I'm glad I found you guys. I wish I had more time to post here like I used to...

On second thought, I think she does fold it the same way, it was just hard to tell because of the clips she was using. But, I don't glue the petals, though it probably wouldn't hurt.

When I first started making these I found a sketch type tutorial with drawings on how to fold the ribbon that was really helpful, but now I can't find it.

This is just how I do it though:

Only I don't cut off all the excess ribbon at the bottom, I just cut the size I need to begin with, heat seal it, fold it, and put it on the needle.

Let me know if you guys have any questions. I love making these and they've been huge sellers both on etsy and at craft shows.

Jessica

Thanks for the link - I will have to try it like that. The other way looks cute, but it's a lot of sewing!

And, your clip is adorable

Oh, those are very cute! You're definitely getting the hang of it. :-)

After you fold the ribbon into the petal shapes, it helps to fold the bottom part of the petal (the part that you're going to put on the needle) in half and then fold the ends back down over itself and then putting all the layers of each petal onto the needle. That's what gives you a nice crease in the middle of each petal. I wish I could explain it better. I'm terrible at explaining things.

Maybe someone else can...
