I’ve been obsessed with making bows lately, mostly for bow ties (lookin’ fancy at work!) an they’re so simple! I keep showing people at work how to do them so I thought I’d do a tutorial.
It’s best if after folding you iron the folds down (but not necessary, I make them a lot on trains and stuff so don’t bother, but it helps) and if you’re using really lightweight material, but I’m lazy, and don’t bother.
This is great for using up scraps of material that you’ve had lying around for ages! Some of these are fabrics I remember my Mum making cushions out of when I was a kid, and material I used for projects at A level!
Example bow made from lovely fabric from The Little Sewing Company (Christchurch, UK).
Made to match the skirt I made yesterday, photos to follow soon!
