DIY: Fabric Bows and Headbands

Good Morning! Today I will be sharing with you all a "how to" - DIY Fabric Bows/Headbands. They are super easy to make and so adorable!
DIY Fabric Bows and headbands
Let's get started! First, you'll need a few different fabric scraps. This is also a great project for left over fat quarters. 
Supplies:
-Fabric (cotton or jersey work best)
-Scissors
-Sewing Machine
-Fold Over Elastic (for headband, hair tie)
-Hot glue gun

Directions:
1. Cut out two pieces of fabric using this general shape-
Now, to be honest, I didn't really measure any of these. I wanted them to be different sizes anyway, and they ended up being different shapes, and sizes. Which makes them unique!
2. Put the "right" sides together and sew along the entire edge leaving a 1.5'' opening in the middle skinny part (on one side)
3. Use the opening to turn the bow right-side out.
4. Next tie the bow in a knot (being sure to center the knot and even out the bow ends)
Headband Directions:
1. Measure out your Fold Over Elastic to the head size you'd like --

2. Overlap a very small part of the elastic and sew two lines (side by side) to attach both ends together (make sure to back stitch)
3. Using a hot glue gun attach your bow to the headband, covering the part where you connected the fold over elastic.
*Follow the same steps for a bow hair tie!*

  5. Oh my goodness, I absolutely ADORE these bows! I have been wanting some just like this for my daughter. They are so cute and unique! I sadly cannot sew, though, so if you ladies ever open an Etsy shop or sell them, let me know because I will be your first customer. Seriously. :)

    Thanks for sharing at the MaMade Blog Hop and for visiting my blog! I'm excited to be following along with you now. :)

    1. Thank you so much, Ashlyn! I'm not quite sure, but I'm sure there would be a way to make them without sewing. You know, we have talked about opening an etsy store. If we do, I will be sure to let you know! Thanks again for the support. Happy to be following along with you, as well! :)

    1. They really were surprisingly easy! I'm with you on that, you better believe taking just these few pictures of Addie were hard enough, she of course, was trying to take them off during our little photo session! :)
