Step 4:

Get fabric A. Fold it in half, then fold the top part several times into tiny folds. Do the same for the bottom half, then hold it in the middle. Pass the threads a few times and loop around to secure.

Step 5:

Get fabric B and wrap one end to the middle of fabric A. Sew it in place. Trim off the excess.

Step 6:

Get a small piece of elastic and insert a safety pin on one end. Insert it inside fabric C. Make sure to hold the other end in place while you pull the other. Sew the ends of the elastic. Place it on the middle end of the ribbon, fold the sides and sew. Do the same for the other side. After that, flip it, and you are done.
