First, measure and draw a rectangle that鈥檚 more or less 5聽x 2 inches. Then cut聽it out. Fold the fabric in half and be sure that the聽wrong sides (the sides you don鈥檛 want to show) are facing you.聽Next, use your sewing machine to sew聽along the edges as shown above. Be sure to leave a little 鈥済ap鈥 open, so you will be able to turn it right side out.

At this point, carefully cut out the corners without cutting through the stitches and turn your bow聽right side out, then hand stich to close the gap. Next pinch the bow as聽shown in the picture below and hand stitch to create the bow shape.


Cut out a new rectangle that鈥檚 3聽x 2 inches, and fold it聽in half to create a long, tight strip. Pin in place and sew all along the edges. Just remember to leave a little gap聽open.

Turn the strip聽right side out and wrap it聽around the center of the bow聽as shown above. Cut the excess and hand stitch the ends in place. Last but not least, insert a bobby pin or hair clip, and you鈥檙e done!
