Bring a little bit of the Art Deco era into your life! This eye-catching ribbon star, also called a cockade, is perfect for wearing (in its smaller size) or for hanging as an ornament (in its larger sizes). Based on a 1920s ribbon work technique, this tutorial has been written with beginners in mind.

You'll learn how to make the ribbon star in different sizes, and how to add a button. The tutorial gives suggestions for using your finished piece as an ornament or as a necklace pendant. However, it can also be used as an embellishment on a sash, coat, or purse, or as a hair accessory. It would make a great gift topper!

There are complete step-by-step instructions and 40 photographs.

Note: These are downloadable instructions and pattern for making a ribbon ornament.

I was very pleased with this! I am an advanced seamstress and I just wanted to see how these were made. If you are a beginner, this is great. It has lots of very clear pictures.

A little confusing to me at first, but got it figured out quickly! I had looked online for free instructions but just couldn't figure it out, read these instructions a couple of times and made it on the third try, now anyone else could have done it on the first, but I was already confused from the other instructions I had tried to figure out. Thank you for such easy instructions that even I could figure it out lol! My daughter made a few also, her first try! lol
