This diy shows you how to make easy bows for a gift or for yourself! This has a lot of steps so yeah 😅
You will need:
- Scrap fabric
- Basic sewing supplies
- Glue gun
- Hair clip
Step 1. Begin by cutring out a 5″ x 7″ peice of fabric
Step 2. Fold it in half on the long side, right sides together. So now the piece is 3.5”x5”. Press
Step 3. Stitch a ¼” seam and turn right side out
Step 4. Press so the seam is in the center of the back. Take each end and turn the raw edges in. Pin in place.
Step 5. Edge stitch each side as close to the edge as possible using a complimentary thread.
Step 6. Take one piece and grab it in the center and fold it accordion style until all the fabric is gathered together in the center
Step 7. Place the gathered piece and place under your presser foot, making sure even on the sides. Sew a zig-zag stitch and backstitch several times to secure.
The middle of the bow
Step 1. Now, cut one 2”x3” pieces for each bow. Fold over the 3” side, wrong sides together and press
Step 2. Stitch a ¼” seam down the side. Trim the seam allowance down to an 1/8”, turn to right side and press with seam down center back
Step 3. Place a generous amount of hot glue on the edge of the strap. Bring the other side of the strap up and around and secure with the hot glue to form a loop.
Step 4. Once dry, slide the loop over one of the sides of the bow. Use hot glue to secure the loop at the back and to attach the hair clip
