Ribbon bundles are sold in one long 2.5 metre length so the ribbon needs to be cut in half and then in half again so there are four pieces, one for each side of the shoe. Take one piece of ribbon and at one end fold one centimeter over once and then fold it over two centimeters again.
To attach the ribbons at the correct angle, fold the back of the shoe forward and down, then mark each side of the shoe on the cotton lining in the angle made. Place the folded end of the ribbon at the marked position and sew as shown in the drawing onto the side of the shoe through the cotton lining but not through the Canvas, Leather or Satin.
The ribbons may be angled forward if required to hold the shoe on more securely.
