No Sew Bow

This is a very simple bow tutorial. There is no sewing involved and just a bit of glue. The great thing about this is that you can make one on the fly and if you don't like it, you can take it apart and make a different one. Any fabric will work so you can be really creative!

  • Fabric
  • Hair Clip
  • Hot Glue (optional)
  • Scissors
 First cut out a piece of fabric. This will be the body of your bow. Longer and thinner pieces will be long and thin bows. Short and fat pieces will be short fat bows. You get it.

Turn the piece over and fold the two sides inward and have them overlap about an inch.

Now pinch it in the middle three times so it looks like this:

Now trim a piece of fabric that is long and skinny. This will be the middle of the bow.

Carefully tie the long strip around the middle of your bow. make sure the knot is in the back.

Tighten and adjust til you like it. at this point you can either tie on the hair clip or glue it. Either way works. Then you can either cut the ends off or keep them.

Easy as pie!
