These hairbows are easy, sweet, and a great way to use up fabric scraps!
I saw this bow on Anthro:
It’s cute, but it is 7″ wide and 5″ tall. Pretty big bow. I wanted to make a few last minute bows to slip into Charlotte’s Easter Basket – somehow our bows are always disappearing. I altered the bows to be about 2″ wide and 1 1/2″ inches tall. I made two of each color so she can have one on each side. If you want to make some for your little one’s Easter Basket here’s what you’ll need:
Fabric scraps (at least 3″x2 1/2″)
Wire (I used the kind for jewelry making)
Paint chips (optional)
Step 1: Cut out your fabric scraps 3″x 2 1/2″. Cut two rectangles out for one bow. Since I made 8 bows, I cut out 16 rectangles.
Step 2: Lay the fabric right sides together and stitch around 3 sides, leaving one end open (like sewing a tiny pillowcase).
Step 3: Flip it right sides out and turn the raw edges inside. Press. Topstitch the opening closed.
Step 4: Now twist the rectangle once so that it makes a bow shape. Wrap the wire around the middle a few times so that it will hold it’s shape.
Step 5: Hot glue the bow to a hairclip.
Let it dry and that’s it!
Step 6: I had a few paint chips lying around so I made some slits in the cards with an exacto knife
and clipped the bows onto them.
Perfect way to slip them into her little Easter Basket!
