Thread two strands of matching thread to a needle and using running stitch, stitch as shown in the figure. I have used different colour thread so that it is easily visible. Corners should be rounded. After stitching one division pull the thread a little. Needle comes out from the back of the ribbon or from the front of the ribbon. At this stage if the needle comes out from back start stitching the other division from the front. If needle comes out from the front start stitching from the back. By doing so the thread will wrap over the selvedge. This helps the thread to gather up easily .Remove the needle from the thread.
