These little bows are so simple and fun– I make them all the time. They are so versatile– you can wear them as shoe clips, hair clips, broaches, whatever you want! I’ve also attached them to headbands.

How to Make Simple Bows:
Step 1: First you need to cut a rectangle of fabric with a little sliver of fabric to set off to the side. The little piece will be the middle of the bow.
Step 2: Next you need to fold the fabric onto itself, lengthwise.
Step 3: Now fold the fabric in the other way to to middle. (Hamburger style? ;))
Step 4: Stitch those bad boys together. Do a running stitch so that you can gather the bow at the center. Make sure you get all of the layers!
Step 5: With a curling iron, straightener, or iron, press the sides of the little sliver of fabric together. This makes the bow a LOT easier to assemble. Stitch the little pressed slice of fabric around the center of the bow.
Step 6: All done!
