When ribbon is woven through all the warp ribbons, gently slide to the top and pin both ends to secure. Continue weaving ribbons in desired pattern.

  7. Repeat above for second woven piece.
  8. By hand or machine, baste around woven pieces to secure ribbon. carefully remove backing paper from fusible web.
  9. Pin 15" edge of woven ribbon, right sides together to top fabric piece. Carefully stitch, making sure ribbons are laying straight and flat. Repeat on opposite end.
