- Fabric of your choice
- Hot glue gun
- Needle and thread
Cut your fabric into a rectangle, the size of which will depend on how big you want your bow to be. A good rule of thumb is to make it about twice as wide as you want the final bow to be, and about 1.5 times as long.
Fold your fabric in half lengthwise, with the right side facing in. Then, sew along the long edge, leaving the short edges open.
Turn your fabric right side out, using a chopstick or pencil to help push the corners out.
Gather your fabric in the middle, wrapping wire around it to secure it in place.
Fluff out the fabric to form your bow, and use the wire to secure it in place.
Trim any excess wire, and add any additional embellishments or decorations as desired, using hot glue to attach them.
What kind of fabric should I use?
You can use any fabric you like, but thinner fabrics tend to work better for this type of bow.
Can I make different sizes of bows?
Yes, you can make bows in any size you like, just adjust the size of your fabric accordingly.
Do I have to use wire to gather the fabric?
No, you can also use thread, but wire tends to give a sturdier hold.
How do I attach the bow to a hair clip or barrette?
You can either glue the bow directly onto the clip or barrette, or sew it on using a needle and thread.
Can I use these bows for gift wrapping?
Absolutely! These bows can add a unique touch to any gift wrapping.
Can I use pre-made bows to make bullet fabric bows?
No, these bows are made from scratch using fabric and wire, but you can certainly add pre-made embellishments or decorations to them.
Can I wash my bullet fabric bows?
It’s best to spot clean your bows, as they may lose their shape or fall apart in the wash.
Is this a good craft project for kids?
