1. Take the two larger pieces for your bow and lay them right side facing in

2. Start at one end and sew all the way around the rectangle until you are 2-3 inches from where you started. Make sure to leave a big enough hole to turn your bow right side out.

3. Turn your bow right side out: Use a pencil or paint brush to help you push it through.

4. Now, take the open hole on your bow and fold it in, then sew it closed. Sew close to the edge.

5. Press the bow with an iron
