I made my son a sheet for his crib with some cotton supporting my
husband’s family’s football team, the Dallas Cowboys. From that project I had a few scraps of fabric left that were fairly small but I still wanted to use. I decided to have my daughter show her team love in a subtle, girly way.
Iron the seam flat. For this little project I felt silly getting the iron and ironing board out, so I just used my flat iron that’s for my hair!
Flip your tube of fabric right side out.
Fold the ends inside a tiny bit and iron those. You can do one end or both, I just did one.
Tuck one end inside the other to make a circle. If you only ironed one end, make sure the “undone” end goes inside the other.
Pinch your circle together, first like this,
Then another pinch like this.
Hot glue your “pinched” parts together. I used a clothespin until it dries. I’m notorious for burning myself, and with this project I really burned my finger and thumb. Because of this, my mom gave me a gift of a new bottle of aloe vera. Thanks mom for your sarcastic yet much needed gift.
your fingers recover the glue dries, you’ll see you need to hide the glue. I got another bit of fabric and ironed a small strip, like this, and hot glued it to my butterfly/alligator hair clip.
Then you’ll glue one end to your bow, wrap it around and glue the other end.
My daughter loves her bows. She loves them so much she wouldn’t stop jumping and running around once I put it in her hair to be able to get a non-blurry picture of her wearing it. Silly girl!
