Now I attached the ribbon around one stitch about halfway up on the side. I tied the ribbon in a knot around the stitch so it will not come off. Then feed one end of the ribbon though the trim work and tie into a bow. After ribbon is tied Cut the ribbon lengths a little longer then the bottom of the bunting, so if the ribbon needs some length as to wrap the baby.
