Felt Ribbon tutorial

Posted on: October 11, 2013

This is a little tutorial to show you an easy way to make a ribbon to accessorize your dolls and plushes just using felt,  embroidery thread, and some glue (glue gun or fabric glue). It’s easy to make, and very cute! I have embellished it with some little  rhinestones I bought at Michaels, but you  can have fun with it, and try different things!

Ribbon made out of felt

You will need  3 pieces of felt cut in rectangles, color of your choice. I am using green, brown and orange for this tutorial, the colors of autumn! The size will depend how large your want your ribbon to be, but you need a large one, one smaller, and a band.

Put the smaller rectangle on top of the brown one, and using a needle and embroidery thread, sew across in the middle. Make folds in the felt by pulling the two threads in the back together. Make sure it is very tight, and secure with a double knot. Make another double knot on the other side using the same threads.

Step 1 to 3, how to fold the felt into the shape of a ribbon.

Pour a bit of glue on the third piece of felt, glue it on the middle of the ribbon, and tightly all the way to the back. Cut the extra pieces of felt remaining. You can leave it as it is, or glue some rhinestones on it to make it more glittery!

You can also make this ribbon as a bow tie.  I made one for my undead figurine, in that case I only use 2 pieces of red felt instead of 3:

I hope you liked this tutorial, and  found it useful! This is a fun way to accessorize your amigurumis, even though you can use this kind of ribbon for other purposes and craft projects!

Happy crocheting!
