Hey I am just in the works of finishing off a ribbon scarf and was just wondering how the hell im gonna finish off the ends so the ribbons don't unravel themselves but didnt really want to finish it off just in a straight line I wanted to let the ribbons hang by themselves I dont know if that maid any sense at all but yeah maybe I can explain this better hmm................. Ok so i made a ribbon scarf by pinning down a bunch of ribbons on tear away interfacing and then sewing across all the ribbons to keep them together and then I am just about to tear away the interfacing but I am trying to think of some clever way to finish off the ends so that it isnt just a straight across hem I still want all the ribbons to hang seperately but i need to some how in a way seal them off!! Any good ideas sorry if I still dont make any sense thanks a bunch

two options i tend to use:
1- singe the edges with a lighter
2 - use a fray-stopper you can get at any craft or fabric store.

Most ribbon is pretty stable if you snip off the ends at a 45 degree angle.  If it's not too late, you could leave a couple of inches of each ribbon hanging off at the ends, cut each one at an angle, and you'd have a fringe fluttering at each end.

You can test this on a scrap.
