I love spending time scrolling through Pinterest (follow me here!). There are just so many beautiful images and tons of inspiration and 10 minutes can quickly turn into an hour. So, after seeing beautiful images like this one and this one, I was inspired to make a fabric hair bow for myself.

Want to make one too? Let’s get started!

Materials

Instructions

One: Cut a 10 inch by 5 inch rectangle and a 5 inch by 2 inch rectangle from the fabric and fusible interfacing. Iron the fusible interfacing to the wrong side of the fabric rectangles.
