Serger Ribbon !

As I was putting up a small tree, I pulled out my decorations.  I thought I would show you how you can make really cheap ribbon. 


I purchased stripe material.  It is red with gold stripes.  I cut it in strips and did a rolled hem along the edges.  For the garland, I just did the rolled hem along the edges, but for the bow, I added some thin wire as I did the rolled hem edge. Now the bow can be shaped!   Get out your sergers and play.  You can make ribbon for presents and anywhere you need a bow.  Don't forget you can use this technique for any material, such as birthday gifts, or other holidays.
