    I used to make these back in the 80’s. And ironically about a month ago I made some for my niece who loved them. Just having a challenging time finding the barrettes. I love no sewing ideas for ribbon. Thanks ?

    I used to make these in high school in the early 80’s. Definitely a trip down memory lane. Who says TBT has to be pictures of us years ago, this is mine. Decided to make some for my 5 yr old niece.
