- 9x6 inch fabric
- 2 inch wide fabric
- hot glue
- needle and thread (optional)
- iron (optional)
Start by ironing your fabric to remove any wrinkles that might make the edges uneven (even though I'm not big on making sure my edges are straight since they will be folded).
You want to fold one side of the material towards the middle-do this horizontally (hotdog). Then do the same thing to the other side but overlapping the first side.
The next thing you want to do is fold the sides in starting with one and overlapping the second one. This is the (hamburger) direction.
Now on the first flap you want to fold the corners in just like wrapping the sides of a present. You do this to both flaps.
Up until this point you were just making the lines, now you can actually glue the edges down and together.

^^^The front after gluing^^^
Now you get too choose the dimples/lines on your bow. You can do two or three, it just depends on how you pull the edges together. Once you have them decided, glue them together... this gets somewhat difficult if your material is thick. This is where you could use the needle and thread, to make the dimples more secure you could put a couple of stitches in.
Take the smaller piece of fabric and fold it just like in step two. Put the flat part on the front of the bow and glue the edges on the back. If you made the strip long enough you can flip the end of the strip over itself to make a slot for a hair clip or bobby pin.
I would love to see your new bows, so let me know what you think!
