She is definitely a girly girl who loves to fix her hair in different ways and has recently been making lots of bows to add to her hair styles.
These No Sew 3 Minute Hair Bows are really quick and easy to make using scraps of fabric you might have left over from another project. I have a stash of fat quarters where she was able to choose her fabric. Here’s Emilee to show you how easy they are to make.
For a large bow cut the fabric 6″ x 18″. Open the fabric wrong side up and fold the outside edges to the center. Cut about 1″ off the end to use as the center of the bow.
Fold the fabric into thirds by overlapping the fabric so it ends up being 6″ long and 3″ wide. The cut edges are on the inside of the bow. Hot glue the underside of the folded piece so it stays together.
Scrunch the bow in the center. Add the 1″ strip to the center of the bow by starting in the back and wrapping it around the bow. End in the back and hot glue it in place. Cut off any excess so the strip ends in the back of the bow.
The large bow measures 3″ x 6″ finished and the small bow measures 2″ x 4″ finished. The small bow starts with a 6″ x 12″ piece of fabric and the center strip is a 5/8″ strip.
You can hot glue a clip to the back of the bow but a bobby pin works really well if you don’t have any clips.
After Emilee made these bows she was on a roll and made about 4 more. I think they turned out so cute and fit her style so well. Here a some of the ways she wears them in her hair.
Cute! I love them! She’s trying to decide on her project for next month. I’m excited to see what she comes up.
