Last week I made bows and tow-ties. I got the how to's on a blog, but I can't find the blog back. WOOPS! So I will just say, I can not take full credit for this idea. I added words on the pictures to explain some steps a little more.
What You Need
Sewing machine (or if you aren't professional like me, hot glue)
Velcro (bow-tie only)
What you cut
3.5x3 (around the middle of the bow)
What ever length you need x3 (strap)
*NOTE: If you are making the bow you do not make the strap*
1. Cut out a 3x20
2. Fold it like this... (with the print inside)
3. Then, Sew or Hot glue
4. Turn inside out, like so
5. It should come out looking something like this
7. Fold the two ends, meeting in the middle
8. Play around with the shape until you get the bow sort a look
Then you glue (or sew) the middle up.
For the middle band
Cut a 3.5x3
You then follow steps 2-6
Then twist/wrap the middle band around the middle of the bow
And secure it with hot glue or whatever
And your finished!
Bow tie strap
I did not take pics. making the strap.
You follow steps 1-6 from the bow. Then attach velcro on the ends.
