You know those annoying ribbons that RTW puts in blouses and dresses so that the garment stays on the hanger. I never use them to hang the garment and they always end up hanging out of my neckline; so, like most, I cut them off.

I use them in my garments anywhere stay tape is needed, especially at the shoulder seam. It works really well and it's free. They are perfect for the shoulder seams. So, next time you cut out that ribbon, save it and use it in your next project.

Yes they are VERY annoying. I use them in my daughters hair, they make great pigtail bows.
