What You Need:

This ribbon kimono will stand out amongst tree ornaments.
  • Offray wire-edge ribbon: 9-inch length of 2-1/2 to 3-inch-wide for the kimono; 2 to 6-inch lengths of 1-1/2-inch-wide for the sleeves
  • Glue gun and hot melt adhesive
  • 10-inch length of 1/16-inch-wide ribbon or cording
  • 8-inch length of gold metallic fine thread
  • Sewing needle

Instructions:

1. Fold under 1/2-inch on the cut edges of the kimono ribbon; finger-press. Fold the ribbon in half with wrong sides facing, bringing the folded edges together. For the top of the kimono, glue the ribbon together along the folded edges with a tiny amount of glue. Repeat with the two 1-1/2-inch-wide ribbon lengths for the sleeves.

2. Fold down the top corners of the wider ribbon to overlap slightly at the center front; glue. To attach the sleeves, glue a top corner of the sleeve to the top corner of the kimono. If desired, pinch and glue a tuck in the top edge of the sleeve.

3. Tie a bow around the top of the kimono with narrow ribbon or cording, slipping it under the sleeves.

4. To make a hanging loop, thread the needle with an 8-inch length of gold metallic thread. Insert the needle through the top back of the kimono; knot the ends together.
