Sewing With Ribbon • 6m 41s
Donna is sharing her expertise with flat ribbon application. As with many skills, this is something that gets better with practice! Follow along as Donna demonstrates and explains how to successfully add flat ribbon to your garments!

Let’s pull out those ribbons and add some trim today!
