Then luckily I bought my 7 year old some baggy short legged jeans which she doesn't like as they 'look like boys trousers'. So I know what I am going to do with the lovely ribbon. I shall use it to embellish and girlify ( is that a word?) the trousers and make them completely wearable for her.
Major big thank you to The Ribbon Girl, please check out their website and blog, great ideas for making something that little bit special.
