The Perfect Bow

Hobby Lobby has a great selection of bolts of ribbon.  They are usually 50% off, so you can spend less than $3 for an entire bolt.

Start by cutting a length of ribbon 19".  Make a figure 8 and then sew with a needle and thread through the middle to secure the ribbon.  Repeat 3-4 times with the same and coordinating ribbon.

Layer the ribbon in your hand.

Sew through the middle to secure all pieces together.

 Tie a knot in a skinny coordinating ribbon.

Wrap around center of bow and sew to back of ribbon.  Add a pinch clip to the back.  I used the coordinating skinny ribbon and made a few more figure 8s.  Khloe had the perfect bow to go with her dress for preschool.  Click here for more instructions on darling bows.  They are easy to make and have step by step instructions.
