  • Gwen's butterfly
  • folded daisy
  • folded bias rose
  • man in his kimono leaf

    pattern and instructions by Christen Brown


    Clear line drawings illustrate the ribbon manipulation techniques that will help you learn how to make ribbon flowers. Specific measurements for various ribbon sizes take the guesswork out of yardage calculations.

    This pattern is printed in black on colored 8-1/2" x 11" reprographic paper and comes enclosed in a clear, resealable plastic bag.
