STEP 1- FOLD THE FABRIC
The first thing you’re going to do is you’re going to fold it so that way we can iron it and what I do is I just fold it in half which is a long way just to make a crease you’re gonna go ahead and open it back up again
You’re going to fold both ends inward so that it overlaps that crease that you just made just overlap it. press the side so that way they stay down and go ahead and overlap one too and then you’re going to take it to the ironing board and press it .so after you’re done pressing it to go ahead and fold it in half and it’s okay if it’s a little bit uneven on besides that won’t really matter. you’re gonna open the larger piece of fabric and it’s gonna have the folded side on the inside.
Now take these two ends to fold them overlapping that crease that you just made a little bit. make sure that the sides are parallel with each other make sure that they’re even and then you have to do the accordion fold which is you’re gonna fold it inward and then fold it back folds it in, fold it back and then fold it in again.
Next, you have to take a needle and thread and sew all the folds in middle, no need to worry about it looking ugly because it’s gonna be covered up.
STEP 2- MAKE A CENTERPIECE
Then get your little piece and you have to fold it. and then fold it again and press this as well this is gonna be the centerpiece for our bow. so now this piece is pressed.
then you can add your wrapped piece.
Here your bow is ready.
This is what the back of the bow will look like and this is what the front will look like just like that so very there you go very quick and easy and easy no so fabric bow.
If you’re gonna use a bear clip just like a plain bear clip without putting a ribbon on it, you can go ahead and add that to your bow first before you wrap it. but the one thing is that you can have to open it up to get the fabric wrapped around. I usually like to already clip it before I glue it so clip it so the piece stays right in the back and doesn’t like to keep going around. If you are using hot glue be very careful while using it’s very hot. If you want to make a ribbon bow you can check out another website if you want.
