May 17th: Norwegian National Day – DIY Sash

Another idea for May 17th, the Norwegian National Day, and all that flag colored ribbon the stores are offering, is combining a rosette with a sash:

This sash is made from 5cm wide ribbon, here modeled by my oldest daughter Guro (age 12).Easy peasy, and makes for a fabulous look on the National Day 😀

The rosette pins the sash in place up on the shoulder:

I also made a wide sash, which my youngest daughter Torunn (age 11) is modelling; she insisted on a serious, regal attitude. 😛

I used a 10cm wide ribbon and cut it to size with serrated scissors, then used one of my rosettes without hanging ribbons to pin the sash together. 

Although my sister commented that the wide sash might be too much, more fit for the Mayor, maybe…lol! (Note to self: I must remember to iron the sash before wearing it, to remove the creases from the winding!)
