I've decided to call these two bows the 'minnie' and the 'mini'...one reminds me of Minnie Mouse's very stylish attire and the other is...well, just smaller!...I never was any good at coming with names for things.
I don't have any amusing anecdotes relating to bows so I think I might just crack on with showing you how to make a belt and hair clip with the mini bow :)
Two ways with a mini bow
This is what we're making :
This is what we need:
Strong fabric glue
2 snap fasteners
3 lengths of 1" wide ribbon (1x 2.5", 1x 6" and 1x waist width + 5")
matching thread and needle
1) First make the bow, this will allow the glue to dry while making the belt. Take the 6" length of ribbon and add a thin layer of glue to one end. Glue the two ends together to form a loop.
2) Next take the 2.5" length of ribbon and add a thin layer of glue to one end. Pinch the previously made loop of ribbon together with the seam in the middle and wrap the 2.5" length of ribbon round and glue together. To make it as neat as possible make sure both of the glued seams are on the same side.
