The first step you take is to use the Ellipse Tool and draw a circle. You should try to get a perfect circle. To ensure that, hold Shift key while drawing the circle. Or, you can click once and enter the dimensions of your choice. Then, you can fill the circle with color of your preference.

You need to create a cool stitch effect to the inside of the circle. To do that, you should select the innermost circle and go to OBJECT > PATH > OFFSET PATH. This time, draw a smaller circle in the inside by applying a negative offset. Now you can change the stroke color to white and remove the fill color. Change the weight to 1pt in the stroke panel and ensure that you check box labeled ‘’Dashed Line.’’

Now create a ribbon. Start with a rectangle. Draw A line with the line tool and select VIEW>GUIDES>MAKE GUIDES. You should use Add Anchor Point Tool that is located in the pen tool drop down, and add an anchor point that is in the middle of the bottom line. Select the new point and hold shift to move it upward so that you can make a V shape to form the bottom of the ribbon. You can then create stitch effects on both the sides of the ribbon by using a line tool and add white dashed stroke of 1 pt.
