Denim Bow

Bows are everywhere right now! People use them as rings, hair clips, necklaces, and whatnot. I’ve been planning to buy bows but I always forget to do so and since I have so much spare time (and materials), I thought, why not just make bows? So last night I made my very first hand-sewn denim bow.

What you need:

Image

Sewing materials (thread and needle), Scissors, used Denim*

*cut a square (it depends on how big you want the bow to be) and a strip around half an inch wide

What you need to do:
Image

Measure 1cm on all sides, Pin it, and do a running stitch

Image

Image

It’s gonna look like that when you’re done sewing all sides!

Image

Fold it 3 time in the middle so now it looks like a bow!

(you can also fold it twice if you want)

Image

Wrap the half an inch strip of denim around the folds you made.

Image

Sew the folded strip of denim at the back of your bow. Make sure the end is there and now in front.

Image

Your bow will look like this when you’re done!

Now you can turn it into whatever you want it to be! 🙂
