This bow can be easily re-created tying a scarf to a barrette. No sewing required!
I used a 60X12 inch silk scarf (I folded it in half to make it 6 inches wide) You can use a smaller scarf, but your bow will be shorter and less full.
- scarf (rectangular, not square) or fabric
- blank hair clip (available at craft stores)
- embroidery floss
|[Fold your fabric in half lengthwise]|
|[Cut a piece of embroidery floss approximately 16 inches long. Tie a knot in the middle of the scarf]|
|[Tie the scarf to the middle of the barrette. Wrap the thread around and knot it a few times to make sure it's secure]|
|[Starting at the knot, fold a section of the scarf over. Take the thread, place it underneath the fold and tie a knot. Pull to tighten]|
|[This is what it should like once it has been tightened. Tie the thread around the clip to secure]|
|[Made another 2 loops using the same method as above. Leave a little extra fabric loose for the ends. Take another 16 inch piece of thread, tie it in the middle and repeat the steps on the other side]|
