Ribbon Weaving

Weaving ribbons can be used for various soft furnish or on accessories or evening wear. Any type of ribbon can be used for weaving, but if the item is to be washed, you should use materials that can be washed.
Basic Steps for Weaving

Materials required

Step 1
Measuring tape
Iron on interfacing
Weaving board
Steam Iron

Step 1

Pin the  interfacing to the weaving board with the glue facing upwards. Pin one end of the vertical ribbons along the top edge of the interface.
Step 2

Step 2

Weave in the horizonal ribbons and pin the ends. Cut  the interfacing to the size of the weaving area, leaving a 2.5 cm seam allowance all round.

Step 3

Use a dry iron to iron the ribbons with moderate heat to glue the interface and the ribbons. Press the outer edges of the ribbons with the tip of the dry iron.

Step 4

When the ribbons are secure, remove all the pins. Turn over the ribbons with the interface facing up and press again with a steam iron and leave it cool.
