If you're fond of bows, even in the slightest tiny bit, I've got a hunch you might enjoy this project. Here is a quick and easy DIY that has springtime written all over it...
Supplies: Lace trim or thin strip of a light weight cotton fabric, small strip of any fabric you like for the middle piece (I used leather), needle & thread, and sew on snap fasteners.
First, begin making your bow by folding over the lace 3 inches; this will be one side of the bow. Then, repeat this on the other side to create the other half of the bow. After you've made sure both sides are even, pinch it in the middle, and stitch it firmly in place. Once you've created the base of the bow, take your small strip of fabric, wrap it around, and stitch it in the back. This is where you get creative! Choose any color or pattern of fabric to make your bow unique! Next, you'll take the end of the lace trim, fold the corners in, and stitch on the back of the fastener. You'll want to make sure you've folded the corners in enough that it won't show once it's fastened to the back of the bow. Lastly, stitch the top of the fastener on the back of the bow, next to the middle strip.
I'm off to try and conquer the busiest week of my entire life; wish me luck! XO
