If you're anything like me, you enjoy your bows with tails. also, if you're anything like me, you probably suck at sewing. I've solved all your problems!
Step 1: What You Need
(I'm not even joking)
Step 2: Cut Your Fabric
My fabric is already cut, because I'm ninja like that.
This is a perfect project to use those pesky little scraps (I'm using scraps from an upcycled shirt project I did).
you need a wide piece, and at least 8cm long. (long enough to be folded in half).
You will also need a longer, thinner piece. Don't stress too much if your edges aren't straight, you can always trim it up later.
Step 3: Fold
Easiest step yet, fold your wider piece of material over. You can fold lengthways or widthways. I folded widthway.
Step 4: Long Piece Prep
Lay your long piece like pictured, so both sides are parallel.
Step 5: Nearly There
Nearly done! Now you have to lay your wide piece on the thin piece. make sure you leave the top loop visible above it.
Step 6: Tying
Bring the tails that are below your wide piece up and over it, and pull them through your loop. Put a finger on both sides of the wide piece, and gently pull the knot tight.
Step 7: All Done!
Once you are happy with where your knot is positioned, pull it as tight as you can! Ta-da!
You now have a fancy tailed bow.
If you have rough edges, or your tails are too long, just trim it!
srockster made it!
