Set out your two pieces of fabrics right side down.
Iron both of your pieces and set your smaller piece aside afterward.
Fold your bigger piece of fabric "half" hot dog style. Make sure your edges overlap slightly.
You might want to iron the piece flat for future purposes.
After ironing it down you will fold it "half" hamburger style, again overlapping slightly.
As you can see on the left middle side the edges are overlapping.
Take your needle and thread and obviously place your thread through the needle and tie a not at the end. Then sew through the middle of the overlapping fabric edges.
It will end up looking like this.
Then pull from the end of the needle down, squishing your fabric together, forming a bow.
Once you're done pulling on the thread, wrap the thread around the middle of the bow. After you wrap it a couple of times make sure to put the needle through the wrapped thread to create a needle.
Snip the excess thread off.
Your bow should look like this.
Take the small piece of fabric and fold it length-wise just like you did with the bigger piece.
Place scissors on one end of the piece of folded fabric to weigh it down and iron the piece.
It should end up like this if you turn it around.
Place it towards the middle of the bow, making sure it is not too wide or thin.
Glue the piece of fabric down.
Wrap it around the front, if it is upside down, it should look like this.
Glue the piece towards the middle of the bow and it should end up like this.
Cut off the excess fabric and it should look like this. Remember to save all pieces of fabric!!!!
Grab your hair clip and it can be an alligator clip or any clip you prefer.
Glue the clip on the middle of the bow.
