  • Velvet-ribbon

  • D rings

  • Iron-on fuse tape

  • Iron


  1. Cut 2 1/2 yards of natural-fiber velvet ribbon.

  2. Slip two D rings slightly wider than the ribbon onto one end, and fold both ends of the ribbon in toward the midpoint, fuzzy side out, keeping the D rings at one folded end.

  3. Remove backing from a 1 1/4-yard piece of iron-on fuse tape, and sandwich it between the layers; place scrap velvet facedown on top, and iron on the cotton setting to fuse the layers.
