Pretty Bows

wanna know how to make em... 

You will need fabric, glue and your imagination!

First you start out with a piece of fabric 6 inches long and 4 inches wide. 
I found this to be the perfect size for me - but go a head and experiment with different sizes to find the right one for you :) FYI (have the back side of the material facing you)
Next you want to fold the edges to the middle. Do one side and glue ( I used a glue gun) Than go a head and do the other. 

After you glue both sided to the center - work Left to right and do the same thing again.

You should end up with a rectangle that is 4 inches long an 2 inches wide :) like this!
This is the back of your bow.

Turn your bow around and pinch it in the center - add a few drops of glue to help keep its shape

Cut a strip of fabric about a 1/2 inch to an 1 inch wide and 3-4 inched long (this will be the middle of your bow) remember to have the back of the fabric facing you and repeat step one. 

Wrap the piece of fabric around your bow and glue - you should end up with a bow about 3 inche long and they will look something like this :)

Last step - Glue and hair clip to the back of your bow and you are SET! :)

LOOK how PRETTY! Simply the fastest bow I have ever made.
