To attach the ribbon on the basket-
 Thread a yarn needle with the ribbon and working from the front to the back weave in and out of the ch-1 spaces between the final round of sc.  Continue working around the basket.  When you reach the starting space cut the ribbon leaving enough to make a bow.   Tie both ends of the ribbon together into a bow.  Trim off any extra ribbon and apply a few drops of glue to each end to prevent fraying.

To secure the bow in place-  
Thread the sewing needle.  Starting on the inside of the basket behind the center of the bow pull through to the front, going through the center knot of the bow.  Then go back through the bow to the inside of the basket.  Continue to go back and forth through the middle of the bow until it feels secure.  Fasten off where you started, tie both ends together and trim off any extra thread.
