How to Make a Hair Bow

How to make a hair bow


Today I'm going to show you how to make a hair bow. I made a few to match the wrap-around circle skirts that I will be sharing tomorrow. I even made an extra - it's in my etsy shop if you want it.

To begin you need a piece of fabric that is 5" x 8".

Fold it in half with right sides together and stitch around the edges, leaving and opening for turning.

Fold it accordion style in the middle to create the bow.

{You may notice the stitching along the bottom. The picture below is one of my trial bows. I didn't hand sew the opening closed, I topstitch it closed. I didn't like how it looked that way, but it shows you how to fold the bow.}

Wrap around a piece of 1/2" ribbon and secure with hot glue.  {I actually sewed a piece of fabric, but I would recommend a piece of ribbon - so much easier!}

Then just hot glue your favorite hair clip to the back and you're ready to wear.
