Step 1: Materials

Soft fleece -  Blue or color of your choice 16" x 24"  and  a  6"x 3" small piece ( to wrap around the bow)
Soft fleece -   Off white - 6"x  8"

Step 2: Cut and Sew

Fold your Blue fleece in ( right side facing each other) half....it should now be  8"x24"
.. place a plate on either side and mark with a pencil the curve. Sew on the curve ..cut excess.  Join the edges but keep an opening so you can turn it inside out....once you turn inside out..slowly close the opening.

Take your white fleece...fold it in half  so that you will get 6" x 4" sew round but keep an opening...turn inside out and close opening.
find the center and pass a needle and thread and gather to make a bow.
Take the small blue fleece and  fold in 2 so you will have a rectangle tube of 6" x 1.5" .
Sew on 2 sides and turn inside out.
Wrap this around the bow and tuck the close end inside the open tube and tack it close.

Take one the end of your long blue fleece and find the center point...tack it to the center behind the bow.
In the center of the other end sew a press button...sew the corresponding  button to the back of the bow.

You are done! Isn't it Quick , Cute and Easy...Those are kind of what i look for always :-)

Is this child sized? Can you upsize it for an adult?
husna fazeen (author)  jsmith26111 months ago
well...it fits an adult too...can easily upsize ...just add length...but i think it's fine as it is!
sorry...for late reply

I feel the instructions are super lacking. I know how to sew very basic. When i look at this i find it very confusing, pictures dont show as much as i would like. Its an amazing and cute bow i would love to make it but i just cannot understand :(
husna fazeen (author)  Wolfinlied1 year ago
sorry for the late reply..
I would love to help you...tell me what you don't understand and i'll try to help you...
If it is the bow you want...simply sew a 3 sides in the rectangle...and a little on the 4th side..
turn it inside out...now slowly close the gap with a needle and thread with invisible stitches.
Follow the steps in step 2...let me know what part you don't understand...like i said before...i'll be happy to help.
take care!

Love this--- wonder if it would look and sit just as well in a thinner fabric????
husna fazeen (author)  jennybotha2 years ago
i think it would.. only if it's very thin why don't you first iron the fabric with fusing...
I would try it later when i have the time with a softer fabric and post a picture. I think cotton would be perfect...just do the same as this tutorial in folding the long fabric..that way it would be firmer. ...give it a go...and let me know how it goes please.
Thanks for reply, husna. Yes, think you're right about the fabric.I would use another type of fabric, but not too flimsy. Think a non iron, stretch type would also be suitable.

I agree with Jessy - that is adorable!!! :) So cute - simple and elegant!
husna fazeen (author)  HollyMann2 years ago
Thanks! .for summer you could do it in softer fabric and wear it with a strap dress.
It would look so cool :-)
So cute! I am just loving big bows!
