Let's get started! First, you'll need a few different fabric scraps. This is also a great project for left over fat quarters.
-Fabric (cotton or jersey work best)
-Fold Over Elastic (for headband, hair tie)
-Hot glue gun
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)
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!*
