Making Fabric Bows … Bows, Bows, Bows Everywhere!

Sometime around Christmas of last year, I decided to dedicate myself to weekly blog posts.  Prior to January, I was scheduling posts whenever I felt like it (rather than on a true schedule).  Well, it’s been A. Lot. Of. Work.  It’s really easy to get discouraged, because even with Pinterest, results are very slow.

A few weeks ago, one of my Pins got picked up by a decent-sized Pinner.  Well, I was ecstatic!!  I think I literally danced in my kitchen. [The corresponding web site is How to Paint Furniture Like a Pro, a post I created a few years ago.]  So I know that at least I created one blog post that people find useful.  Or maybe my image was nice. 🙂

If you are a fellow blogger like me, I invite you to read along with my journey.  I will be blogging a bit about the success of my blog in the middle of my DIY refashion and sewing tutorials.  Along the way, I hope to inspire someone else to keep on blogging, too!  Drop me a comment, because I’d love to hear about your struggles.  Maybe we can help each other grow our blogs.

At the end, I hope to make my first web site traffic and income report.  I’m crossing my fingers that I make, at the very least, what I spent this year.  That’s not too tall of an order, because I don’t spend too much on the blog.

How to Make a Fabric Bows the No Sew Method





Materials needed:

A square of fabric.  I used a solid color and a patterned fabric fat quarters. You can also use some precut squaresMaking fabric bows!!  Bows are so beautiful.  This tutorial is part of a series of 10 posts ... all about bows!  I am going to craft or refashion 10 projects using fabric bows in some way or another.  After the series is over, I will come back to each post and add all of the tutorials.  For this bow, you could make it into a hair bow or even just add some flair to a shirt or something.  My daughter has already requested a bunch of hair bows.

or leftover fabric from another project. Whatever your needs!

We start with a square of fabric.  Here, you can see that I “attempted” to make a quilting square from some leftover scraps.  But I couldn’t quite get my corners to match up … that’s okay.  You won’t be able to tell once the bow is done.

Turn the square around.  You can easily see the center, but that doesn’t matter even if you don’t have a “center” marked.

Add some glue to two corners that are together.  In other words, don’t put glue on opposite corners.  You need the two connect corners to know where the center is (even though my fabric square has one).

I made a separate quilted center, but if you don’t have one, you can just use a strip of fabric.  It should be a rectangle.

I added a dot of glue to keep it together.  Can you see it? 🙂

    • I’m sorry, but I do not have any videos at this time. Thank you for the great suggestion! I may try to implement some videos in the future. In the meantime, can I help you with a particular step? Maybe I could offer some extra explanation or photos.

    • I agree! Step one is talking a square but the picture shows the squares already put together somehow??? I’ve no idea what a quilters square is? Definitely need clearer instructions…
