DIY: Make a BoW!

Hey Party People!!!!
Are you having a Saturday Night out or sitting at home with your family?

Well, let me tell you, weather here is AWESOME! I'm not the kind of person who puts up statuses like "Rain <3" , "Awesome Mausam (weather) " etc etc .. Today.... I'm no different. :D. So I'll just say it here.. That such weather is a great time to catch up with some friends, read a book or just listen to music :)

Before you do that, let me show you a ..
* Colorful, Bright and Fun* DIY !!! ~ How to Make A BOW at Home!

You must have seen some amazing bow ideas on clothes, bags, accessories, shoes.. Guess what? I'll show you an easy-to-do creation :) Let's begin!

You  must have seen this Pink Bow in my Previous Post: HERE
The Black N White Polka Dot bag is from Oasap.com


Here is how you can make a cute bow in varied sizes :)

Step 1: Take a piece of old Cloth, Any measurement! For starters, I used
Length- 8.5" (Big cloth) and 5.0" (Small cloth)
Width- 4.5" (Big cloth) and 2.5" (Small cloth)



Step 2: Fold both the clothes along the width.


Step 3: PIN the openings so that it doesn't open up and SEW it!


Step 4: Turn the cloth in such a way that the stitched part comes on top middle! Press/Iron it.


Step 5: Fold the bigger cloth into half. PIN and SEW it!


Step 6a: Turn the bigger folded cloth to bring the stitches upfront (like you did before).
Step 6b: Wrap the smaller cloth around the bigger cloth. Tighten it and PIN & SEW it.


Step 7: Trim the excess part of small cloth. Voila! You are done! :)

  39. I was eagerly awaiting this post! I loved the bow in your last feature and couldn't believe it was DIY. How do you get all these cool creative ideas. Its turns not not to be as complicated as i would have thought, so I will definitely try making it - in a few different colours. I think it will look cute as a brooch. As your weather is getting better, ours is getting so much more colder, but I am not complaining. Goos luck for finals sweetheart!
