I'm sorry it has been quite a while since I've posted! I have been working on lots of other projects and of course looking after my two little girls who are now nearly 4 and 2 years old! Time has flown by but I'm still doing lots of making, although not so much clothing. Instead I've been working on some small accessories and children's toys but I hope to continue sewing clothing some time in the future.
Today I want to share a hair bow tutorial with you which is easy, quick and would make lovely little presents for family or friends. Anyone can do it so why not give it a try? It's a great way to use up the scraps of fabric you have and it would even make a great activity to do with your children (perhaps aged 6+) during the summer holidays or indeed at anytime!
Hot glue gun
Fabric scraps (at least 14cm x 9.5cm)
Ribbon (10cm but you'll only be using about 4cm)
Thread and needle
Sewing machine (optional)
Measure and cut a piece of fabric measuring 14cm x 9.5cm. The seam allowance is 1cm and you won't be sewing on the folded edge so your finished bow will roughly measure 6cm x 7.5cm.
- Put some glue on the top half and quickly but gently fold it over the middle part of your bow.
I have made some for the girls which they love and I couldn't resist making one for myself too from this lovely african print fabric.
Note: If you're wondering where to buy a glue gun from I bought mine from amazon here for only £5.99 with 50 free glue sticks. The clips I used I bought from an ebay shop here.
