Miss Samanteina Bloodmyer requested a tutorial on making those hair bows which are small opaque bows encased in bigger netting bows. I think maybe it was Chocomint that kicked off this trend but I can’t remember. So here we go 😀
My result for a bow inside a bow…
What you need:
These couldn’t be easier to do!
Cut out two rectangles of the opaque fabric for the inside bow…
Lay them together good sides facing, stitch around the outsides leaving a few cm gap.
Turn it inside out and stitch up the hole!
Next lay it on top of your netting and cut out two much larger rectangles…
Again stitch around the outsides as you did with the first bow and leave a bigger gap this time, around 10cm.
Turn it inside out but don’t stitch it up yet!
Now poke the entire first bow through the hole of the first and inside it.
You get something like this with the opaque bow in the middle:
Cut another smaller rectangle of the opaque fabric to wrap around the middle and hold it together. Pleat both bows together.
Stitch it together securely and you’ve got a pretty cute bow!
Of course you just need to add a bobby pin, pin or something to attach it to whatever you like! I’ll have to take you all through a tour of my accessories wall sometime, with all of this bow making it’s gotten a bit out of control haha!
