This is the kind of DIY I love, simple and easy to do! Just grab an old pair of jeans that still fits you, find the perfect combination of ribbon (about 24 inches of each) and get started! My embroidered ribbon measures about 5 inches on each side, sewn. I got a yard of each just in case, and I have plenty left over for a headband. I ended up sewing the cuff so it wouldn't open and reveal the rough edges of my ribbons, I matched the thread to the color of the jeans so you can't tell that it's sewn unless your staring really inappropriately long at my, uh, shorts.
