Step 1: Prepare
cut the ribbon (About 15 Inches - usually wrap it around my hand to decide the length). Use Any Width/ Color Ribbon
Step 2: Fold
fold the ribbon into a bow. kinda like a pretzel looking shape.
Step 3: Sew
sew a few stitches down the middle to make it secure.
Step 4: Hold
pull the string, push up the ribbon until it gets "scrunchy" in the middle.
Step 5: Secure and Tighten
wrap needle and thread around thw middle of the bow, also sewing through it about 2-3 times. cut thread and use a tiny dap of hot glue (what I use) to secure the lose end part of the thread.
Step 6: Done
you should now have a basic bow. there is so much you can do, like add alligator clips or a barret.
