Hi everyone, Happy New Year to you!
Quite a few people have asked how I make these pretty little bows that I use on pin keeps and pillows, in fact they can be used to trim most cross stitch or sewing projects.
I used the same bow on this pin keep, all I did was put the pin through the top of the finished bow to give this effect.
You will need a length of ribbon, I won't say what size because that would depend how big you would like the bow to be.
Take one end and curl it on itself, I have used scissors so that my fingers don't get in the way!
Just follow the photographs!
Curl the ribbon back on itself
Keep curling the ribbon on itself until you get the desired amount of loops.
Put a pin through the middle to hold in place.
Cut two strands of ribbon for the bow
Pin in place
Stitch together with small stitches that do not show through.
I usually stitch my bows to my projects but you can glue them with fabric glue if you wish.
And there you have it, a pretty little bow for any of your projects.
You can use any size of ribbon, the result is always the same.
Happy bow making!
