This first bow is probably known to most of you a "Boutique" bow, but I think the way I do mine is different than the right way. Hey, that's me....always gotta be the odd ball! (Please excuse these bad iPhone pics. My birthday is in March, can you guess what's at the top of my list? ;)
You likey? Want one? Or ten? Here's what you do:
First, gather your supplies.
*Ribbon (I used grossgrain 1.5in. I find it the easiest to work with, but any kind will work)
*Needle and thread
*Lighter or fray check
*3in of 3/8in coordinating ribbon
*3in of 5/8 or 7/8 in coordinating ribbon
Now that you have all your goodies gathered, take your 1.5in ribbon and cut (2) 12in pieces.
Take one piece and make a circle and do a running stitch through it.
Do the exact same thing with your other 12in piece of ribbon.
When you have 2 figure 8's all you do is tie them together. I used wire so you could see it, but thread will hold it just fine.
After everything is done you should have this little cutie to show off!
