Elaine Schmidt shares a tutorial at Sew4Home showing how to make a fancy ribbon cockade. Bits of ribbon are folded, stitched, and layered to make this gorgeous medallion, an explosion of color and print. The design is featured on the cover of her book, How to Make 100 Ribbon Embellishments. Go to Sew4Home for the tutorial.
