DIY Bow Elastic Hair Ties

Use up all your scraps of fabric to make the cutest hair bows. The great thing about these bows is that they get tied onto elastic hair ties. It makes them easier to wear AND easier to sew! It’s only one pattern piece and two seams.

Supplies:

– Scraps of quilting cotton – Sewing tools – Sewing machine – Free bow elastic hair tie sewing pattern

STEP 1

Cut out two pieces of fabric for each bow on the bias.

STEP 2

Place the matching pieces right sides together and pin. Sew around the edge with a seam allowance and leave a hole for turning. Backstitch when you start and when you stop.

STEP 3

Use scissors and pinking shears to trim all the corners and to notch the outer curves.

STEP 4

Turn the bow right side out through the hole. Use a point turner to carefully poke out all the corners.

STEP 5

Press the bows flat with the seam allowance tucked inside for a crisp edge.
