DIY Fabric Bow ~ Pattern and Tutorial July 7, 2015 – Posted in: 4th of july, bow, dress, free tutorial, girls clothes, pattern, peasant dresses, sewing, tutorial
So, I made THESE cute patriotic peasant dresses for my five girls before Independence Day. The dress is made of red and white chevron quilting cotton. The bows are detachable, making it a multi-holiday dress, if they so desire. It took me awhile to figure out how I wanted to make the bows so I thought I would share a tutorial today showing how I made them.
They can be made in any cotton fabric and added to any project, so it is a super versatile thing. I made 3 different sizes, too. The small one would even work with a small loop instead of a long tie to make a hair bow or adapt it to make a bow tie!
For a large bow, cut one piece of fabric 10″ x 18 1/2″ and another piece 6 1/2″ x 42″.
For a medium bow, cut one piece 8″ x 14 1/2″ and another 6″ x 35″.
For a small bow, cut one piece 6″ x 10 1/2″ and another 4 1/2″ x 24″.
I am showing you how to make it using pieces for a large bow.
