@actime:  Yes I made it myself. I knew I was going to make it myself after trying one at the store and finding out how expensive it was. It took me a few days but it was  about $20.00 and totally worth it. I’m happy with it! And how luck of you to find such a couple of pretty sashes within your budgetSmile! YAY! πŸ™‚

@MissFlowerPot:  Thanks! It was time consuming but pretty simple and inexpensive. I bought about two yards or two and half (can’t quite remember) of ribbon. Then I went to my local Goodwill (awesome place for finding helpful stuff) and while browsing I found this old, very old wedding dress. This was the fabric I used to make all the flowers. I made three different kinds of them: the yo-yo flowers (just two, very small), a bunch of wrap-around roses, and the three flowy petal ones. To these three I attached these rhinestones I got from an old shirt of mine I didn’t use anymore (if you want to I can send you pics of the process or links to the vids I found where they teach you how to make each one of them). I already had the shiny part as well, but you can find pretty earrings, brooches or bracelets at the goodwill as well and arrange them in any way you like. Once you have all of these, you can grab a piece of felt that matches the flowers, or in my case I used a piece of tulle. This is your base, arrange all the stuff on top of this piece in a way you like best. I took pics of that, for two reasons, to figured out which one I like best and so I wouldn’t forget the placement of each flower and blingy thing. After that I went ahead and attached one by one to the piece of tulle (I hand sewed them, you can use a hot glue gun, but I think it’s more secure the other way), once everything is in one piece, you can attach this to your ribbon, I actually put my wedding dress on ( I have it already) and wrapped the ribbon around my waist, then I held the piece to it, to find out where I wanted to go, and place a hair pin (yes a hair pin, they don’t poke the ribbon) to mark where my piece would go. I, then hand sewed the piece and voilá, you got yourself a sash!

Hope it helps!

And sorry for the long post. Maybe I should just do a tutorial. πŸ™‚

 

p.s. For fabric purposes you can find pretty blouses at Goodwill or any thrift store and just use them for their fabric, it’s cheaper, and you can find them in pretty much every color and every kind of fabric. Also make sure it’s not so heavy at the top or it might bend forward.

@actime:  That’s awesome price for two! I have considered making another one in a different color for the reception as well, but we’ll see if I have time since I’m making some other stuff for my mom and my Mother-In-Law. πŸ™‚
