DIY: Hair Bows


Hello all!  Here is another fun and easy DIY for you.  Cute hair bows that anybody can make. You can make little bows or big bows.  I got the steps from www.domesticfashionista.com.  Usually if I do things a little different I would take pictures, but since I did everything exactly like how she did it, I decided to just show her steps.  Let me know if you have any questions and have fun with it =)  This floral fabric was from a skirt that I alter and I saved the extra fabric.  So, you could just take a old t-shirt that you don't want and use it.  Comment me below if you do try the DIY, so I can see how your bows turn out.  Have a great day!


Supplies:
-Fabric
-Needle
-Thread
-Some type of hair clip {or you can always bobby pin it into your hair}
-Hot glue

1. Cut rectangular piece of fabric.  The bigger the piece, the larger the bow.  
2. Hold over the top and bottom.
3. Fold again to tuck in non-sewn edge.
4 and 5. Fold over right and left side of fabric so they slightly overlap in the middle.
6 and 7. Hand stitch the two sides up the center.
8. Pull the thread so that the bow gets cinched in the center and wrap remaining thread around center and tie.
9. Cut a small piece of fabric for the bow's center.
10. Fold over the top and bottom so they overlap and hide frayed edge.
11. Wrap around bow.
12. Hot glue to bow.
13. Hot glue hair clip to back.
