treating the ribbon

Did you treat the ends of the ribbon with anything, so that it wont fray? If not, you can use frey check or frey stop, apply a little to the ends, and it will help prevent fraying. You can get it at the fabric section in wal mart, and is a life saver for regalia. I dance fancy shawl, and use it on all my ribbon work.
The outfit is adorable, you did a wonderful job!

For the little guys outfit----

take a candle-- burning and than put the fringes of satin ribon near the flame-- it melts it down-- that prefents for ribbing of.

To go through the Cloth of the cape with the yarn fringes is one way-- but sometimes, the cloth is not very smooth after that.

sorry, I dont have a pic of that at the moment.

what also works.... you cut the yarn--- I normally take a different coloured pice of yarn in the length of the double fringe and make small bundles and cut them-- to put everything over a cardboard will work, but the fringes are not so equal- as I noticed

than you take some ribbon, like fox braid--i think it is called like that in English, or coton ribbon and put the fringes throug that ribbon-- you can make knots-- or sew over it later-- like I did here:
Tiny-Tod Grassdance Outfit-Wet Grass - Redstar-tradingpost

Here I put the fringes directly through the cloth:



Hope that helpes--- if it is not good to understand-- I can try to explain it again- hope better.

Best regards from Elke

I experimented with different ways of attaching the ribbon. I also just sewed the apron to the pants. I have never done this before so it isn't wonderful, but I think it's a good first try.
