Ribbon Capri’s

Did you fall in love with the Capri’s from the latest giveaway?

Is that because of the ribbon at the bottom or did you fall in love with the idea of spring and wearing capri’s outside?? Do you want some for a little girl you know?


Pretty quick project.


I found these capri’s at an “end of season” sale several months ago at Old Navy. That’s one of my favorite hobby’s…….finding a discount!! I only spent a couple of dollars on them and got a few different colors of ribbon to attach to the bottom. I used 11 pieces of varying width ribbon for each leg, cut them each 3 inches long, heat sealed the ends with a lighter, and then pinned them to the bottom of the capri’s (while inside out), 1/4 inch apart.


I sewed around the capri leg once, and then another time, really close to the bottom edge.


Turn them right side out and let your little lady slip right into them. She’ll love ’em.
