Seniors look forward to prom from the time the school year begins. As the special event approaches, you can make wide satin sashes for the prom queen and court to wear at the big event. The sashes are easy and inexpensive to make, so you can send the elected royalty home with mementos of the culmination of their high school years. You can create simple ribbon sashes for prom, or add a bit of glittery flair with glue-on gemstones or iron-on rhinestones（Christmas cocktail dresses online）.
Cut a piece of satin ribbon to a length of about 72 inches.
Lay the ribbon on your work surface with one end in front of you. Cut out a triangular shape from the end, and then flip the fabric to put the other end in front of you. Cut out the same shape from this end.
Insert the end of the embroidery thread through the eye of the needle. Sew a row of small straight stitches all the way around the outside edge of the ribbon.
Fold the sash in half, and measure about 4 inches up from where the ends now overlap. Make a small mark on the wrong and right sides of the ribbon, at both ends, with a piece of chalk.
Cut two 1-inch squares of hook-and-loop fastener. Pin one of the squares over one of the marks on the wrong side of the fabric. Pin the other square at the other end of the ribbon, over the mark on the right side of the fabric. Sew the hook-and-loop fasteners in place.
Write the words “Prom Queen” or “Prom Court” across the sash, using a pencil. Paint over the letters with a metallic fabric paint pen. Let the paint dry, according to the paint manufacturer’s instructions.
Wrap the sash over the teen’s shoulder, and press the fasteners together to keep it closed.
