First, get the ribbon and start feeding it slowly into the sewing machine, stitching about 1/8" from the right edge.
This will be the first pleat, so make it about as big as you want all of them to be.
Keep doing this along the length of the ribbon until you have a section that's as long as you need.
|Here it is!|
And there you have it...You can find some varieties of ribbon that are already pleated, but if you do it this way you can get the colors and sizes that you need.
