DIY Hair Bows are so quick and easy to make. You can add the bows to a hair clip, hair tie, or a plain headband.
- Fabric scraps (or fat quarter)
- Pattern: Download Hair Bow – The Lost Apron
- Hair clip, tie, or headband
Step 1: Fold one piece of fabric with the right sides together. Pin and cut pattern with the grain line parallel with the selvage.
Step 3: Stitch around the entire edge 1/4″, leaving an opening where the washi tape is, and pivoting at the corners.
Step 4: Place an index card at the opening along the seamline. Press. Turn over and repeat on the other side.
Step 5: Turn right-side-out. Use a Point Turner to poke the corners. Press. (There is no need to stitch opening closed.)
Step 6: Insert into a hair tie and knot.
Or insert into a hairband and knot.
Or insert into a hair clip and knot.

My name is Ana Sullivan. I began my blog, The Lost Apron, because people would ask me for advice on parenting. My only qualifications for giving advice is that I have been there and I am proud of who my children have become. I have a daughter in college, a son and another daughter that are college graduates who are working and living on their own. I have been married for almost 30 years to a dream of a husband.
I have been a working mom, a part-time-work-at-home mom, and a stay-at-home mom. Although I have prefered being the SAHM, I try to write my blog in a way that would encourage all moms to be better moms. I hope to be the mentor mom to the young mom and the friend to the older moms and grandmothers. You can visit me over at Pinterest and Facebook.
