TLC387 ~ Pleated or Ruched Ribbon ~ (7/23/12)
Today we are pleating and ruching ribbon! For this challenge, please do not use ribbon that comes already pleated.
We want to start with FLAT RIBBON
and do the pleating/ruching ourselves!
There are several different ways to do this. In my three examples, I use Scor-Tape to hold my ribbon down, and in the newest sample linked below I tie Baker's Twine on top of that to help it stay in place.
Here is a link
to the SCS Resources section with a tutorial on pleating using staples.
And the definition of "ruche" - a
strip of pleated lace, net, muslin, or other material
for trimming or finishing
My sample: FOREVER
Also see the attached thumbnails for examples already in my gallery.
