You can make an elegant-looking princess sash to add to a Halloween costume or make a bunch of sashes for a little princess’s next birthday party and hand one out to each of the guests. You can keep the sash simple, with just a little bit of glitter, or embellish the sash with imitation gemstones or miniature silk flowers. The sashes can also be used as a party activity by having the party group decorate the sashes with fabric glitter pens, glue-on decals and puffy paint.
Things You'll Need
- 2- to 4-inch-wide satin ribbon
- Letter stencils
- Fabric glitter pen
- Hook-and-loop fastener
- Fabric glue
Cut the ribbon for the sash. Cut the ribbon to about 36 inches. Cut the ends diagonally for nicer looking edges.
Fold the ribbon in half and make a small chalk mark to keep track of the center. Half of the sash will drape across the front of the body and the other half behind.
Place letter stencils down the front half of the ribbon to spell the word “PRINCESS.” Alternatively, write the letters down the sash using freehand. Do this with a piece of chalk or erasable fabric pencil.
Trace over the stencils or freehand letters with a fabric glitter pen. Let the glitter dry for 10 to 15 minutes and then carefully remove the stencils. Let the glitter dry completely.
Measure 2 inches inward from each short end on the wrong side of the ribbon and make a small chalk mark. Cut a small piece of hook and loop fastener. Apply fabric glue to the back and press it against the chalk mark. Cut a corresponding piece of hook and loop fastener, glue it and press it against the other chalk mark.
