April Quick Tip!
Time for another Brother Sews Quick Tip! Use built in alphabet and decorative stitches from the sewing side of your machine to make a quick decoration for a baby gift.
- Program desired lettering and stitch at each end of the ribbon using tear away stabilizer underneath. Add a row of decorative stitching to the edge of the ribbon. See Figure #1.
- Remove excess stabilizer and press ribbon flat.
Tip: Use a little fabric spray starch to press the ribbon nice and flat.
- Fold a 7-inch piece of ribbon to form a bow, gathering the center with basting stitches
- Use button sewing stitch and button foot to sew a button in center of bow and attach it to main piece of ribbon. See Figure #2.
Note: Grosgrain ribbon shown here measures 1 1/2-inches wide by 15-inches long.
