This is a quick and easy way to make bow hair accessories. The process is pretty straightforward using common and easily found materials. Depending on your experience, it should only take 20-30 minutes to complete.

They are easily customizable once you know the process creating potentially endless possibilities! They're a great summer accessory that add just a bit more cute to any outfit!

Step 1: Materials

You will need:

- A needle
- Thread
- Fabric (Since only a little is needed, scraps from previous projects, old clothing, etc. is perfect for this project)
- Scissors
- Glue (white or hot glue)
- Ruler
- Bobby pins
- A sewing machine makes it easier and neater, but isn't absolutely necessary

Step 2: Step 1: Cut the fabric


You'll be cutting two rectangular pieces of fabric. One will be the actual bow, and one will be the middle part (see second photo for clarification).

The measurements do not have to be accurate at all. I don't personally measure, and just guess. For those who are more precise, the final bow will be roughly one third of the length and the entire height of the fabric. Don't forget you can mix and match fabrics for a unique look!

NOTE: Since I am using t-shirt fabric for this particular bow, I don't have to worry about finishing the edges since it won't fray. If you're using cotton or another type of fabric that needs finishing, take that into account when cutting the fabric to size. The length will still be one third of the final bow, but the height will be one half, for example.

For other fabrics, it's easy as well: Just fold the fabric in half height-wise with the good sides facing each other, then sew along the long edge. Turn it inside out and you have what you need for the next step. In the third photo, I sewed two additional seams on each side, lengthwise, for looks. The same process can be used for the middle piece.
