I hope someone here can help. My husband is in the Police Force and has been given some ribbons to sew onto his uniform for a medal presentation. I know they should go just above the left hand breast pocket but I have no idea how thick they should be or whether you sew the sides down once you have folded them over. I was planning to wind them around a piece of cardboard as a template and use fabric glue to stick the ribbon to itself and then sew the finished ribbon 'oblong' onto the tunic. I thought sewing the sides 'shut' might look messy and glue might work better.... what is usual? Any help much appreciated. Many thanks.
