My daughter used to help me with blog posts a few years ago. She shared some great craft projects that were fun and easy to make for teens and adults. I wanted to share a few of her projects starting with these lovely No Sew 3 Minute Hair Bows. They’re a great project to use up scraps of fabric you might have left over from other projects. I also had a stash of fat quarters where she was able to choose some of her fabric.

All you’ll need to get started is some fabric, scissors and a glue gun. Don’t you love being able to use scraps of fabric?

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. Don’t worry about the raw edges. They won’t show once the bow is finished.

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 fabric 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. If you want to make a simple bow tie you can put elastic through the loop.

    So cute~ I’ve got a little boy on the way. I saw these and thought how cute would it be to make him some little bow ties to dress up his outfits for church!

    I needed to make 42 bow ties for a musical. I searched all the no sew bow ties I could find. This one was the best! They were easy to make and once I got into a routine, they were done in no time. Thanks for the tutorial!
