Bow Hair Clip ( Free Sewing Tutorial)


Hair Clip Tutorial

Make this adorable Bow hair clips in no time! Who knew satin ribbons could be so versatile and quick to work with. You can make these in just under ten minutes. Make them in different colors to match your outfits.  You can choose to make it bigger or smaller by altering the size of the ribbon used. So what are you waiting for? Grab your sewing notions and join me as I take you through every step of this BlissfulSewing Project!


Materials Required
1. Satin Ribbons of two different widths. My wider one is 1 1/2 inches wide and smaller one 5/8 of an inch.
2. Needle and thread
3. One hair clip to attach to the bottom of the bow





Cut two 3 1/2 inches long strips of the wide satin ribbon




Fold the strips and zigzag the ends shut




Fold the sewn strip to bring the seam at the middle as shown




Pinch the centre and sew to make a bow




Make one more in the same way




Keep one bow over the other in an 'X' as shown




Sew the two bows at the middle to hold them together




Take the narrow satin ribbon, wrap it around the middle and sew in place




Trim the excess and sew down the seam for a better finish




Insert a clip at the back to make it wearable

Enjoy your new cute creation!

  8. This is a great tutorial! Many people use grosgrain ribbon for hair bows and accessories and overlook satin ribbon... yet the satin has such a 'finished' look. Well done!
