Have you ever made a perfect outfit and then wanted some hair bows to match/contrast? Well, I made some and a few ladies started asking how I made them, so I figured it could be my first tutorial for the year!
So I have a template I use, I drew the measurements onto cardboard, that way when I want to make another I idon'thave to measure anything, I just use my template and cut!
What you'll need: a small piece of the fabric you wish to use, lightweight interfacing, contrasting fabric for the bow keeper, hot glue gun, needle and thread, clip or headband.
You need a rectangle 5 1/4" wide and 4" long
Then cut a bow keeper, 1" wide x 4" long
Cut a piece of lightweight interfacing about 3/8" smaller than the fabric
Iron on your interfacing
Fold up the long sides of the bow to the middle so they just overlap slightly and press well
Then fold the short ends in so they overlap slightly and press really well
Fold the bow in half, so the raw edges are on the inside
Then keep folding to form a bow
Hand sew the bow together
Fold your bow keeper in so the raw edges overlap
wrap the bow keeper around your bow middle
Cut off the excess bow keeper and sew the bow keeper raw edges together
Use your hot glue gun to attach to your choice of clip. If you were making it on a headband, insert your headband before you cut off the excess bow keeper and sew it all on together.
