Hi there! Erin from Sewbon here today to share a fun and easy fabric hair bow sewing tutorial that was inspired by Pinterest!
I love spending time scrolling through Pinterest (follow me here!). There are just so many beautiful images and tons of inspiration and 10 minutes can quickly turn into an hour. So, after seeing beautiful images like this one and this one, I was inspired to make a fabric hair bow for myself.
Want to make one too? Let’s get started!
- HeatnBond® Light Weight Fusible Interfacing
- Strong Craft Glue
- Zipper Foot (optional)
- General Sewing Supplies
One: Cut a 10 inch by 5 inch rectangle and a 5 inch by 2 inch rectangle from the fabric and fusible interfacing. Iron the fusible interfacing to the wrong side of the fabric rectangles.
Two: Take the larger rectangle and fold it in half, right sides together, along the 10 inch side (hot dog style). Pin and sew with a 1/4 inch seam allowance .
Three: Press the seam open.
Four: Turn the fabric right side out.
Five: Fold the ends in towards the center and pin.
Six: Sew a straight line through all three layers, backstitching at the beginning and end.
Seven: Pinch the rectangle in the center and apply some craft glue in the folds.
Eight: Use a clip to hold the fabric together while the glue dries.
Nine: Take the smaller rectangle and fold it in half, wrong sides together, along the 5 inch side (hot dog style). Pin and sew with a 1/4 inch seam allowance .
Ten: Press the seam open.
Eleven: Wrap the smaller rectangle around the bow and pin. Sew as close to the bow as possible. A zipper foot will help with this.
Twelve: Trim the seam allowance.
Thirteen: Glue the bow to the barrette with craft glue and let it dry.
