How to Make a Cute Bow



Ever wondered how to make a cute bow? It's super easy and really fun. Since I'm off and you might be too, I thought this would be the perfect DIY to do that won't take up your whole day! Bows are not only one of my fashion favorites they've become one of my fashion staples because of the many ways you can use them to make any outfit stand out.  All you'll need to make one, or a few, is a little coordination and some:

❤ Fabric 
❤ Thread
❤ Iron/flat iron

The first thing you need to do is cut a rectangular piece of fabric. The bigger the rectangle the bigger the bow. Once you've cut your rectangle, cut a rectangular slit from the bottom of your rectangle (the shorter side). Now take your rectangle and fold both sides towards the middle. Next fold both ends towards the middle, one overlapping the other. Now sew a running stitch making sure to sew through each layer. 




When you're done take your smaller piece of rectangle and fold both sides towards the middle one overlapping the other. Once you have done this, iron/flat iron it to make this piece flat. Take this piece and wrap it around the middle making a bow. Now use this piece in the middle to secure the bow. Viola! You have a cute bow to rock anyway you please!





Tips on how to rock your bow
1. Wear it in the back of a high bun
2. Put it on a chain and wear it as a necklace
3. Add it to the back of a cute heel or wedge.

4. Wear it as a bow tie
