I’d like to give a big WELCOME to Michele from Sew Sweet Vintage!!!
are easy and inexpensive to make, using up cycycled and recycled
jersey knits and cotton fabric.
super short tutorial on how to make a 12 inch pillow bow:
coordinating jersey knit shirts to cut apart. I recently picked a
black and b&w polkadot knit, both women’s size large, from the
Goodwill, for my bow project.
by 15 inch piece from each top for the front and back of your bow.
the right sides of each piece together, facing each other, and
machine stitch three sides with a finishing stitch. Leave the fourth
side unstitched, so you can turn your bow right side out and finish
the edges. I used white thread in my bobbin, so you could see my
stitching. I would normally match it to my fabric.
by 4 inch piece of fabric for the center loop of your bow.
5. Next, fold in half length wise, good side facing in, and machine stitch edge with a straight stitch. Then turn right side out as shown on right side of photo above.
loop in half, with seam facing out, and machine stitch edge of loop
with finishing stitch (as shown in above photo).
right side out again. This is the center of your bow (shown below).
right side out, tuck in unfinished edge of bow and machine stitch
bow’s edge with a straight stitch, to close end of bow.
stitch other end of bow’s edge as well.
center loop onto bow. Your finished bow should measure 12 inches.
post inspires your to save those fabric scraps, and to add a bow tie
to a favorite tank top, dress or pillow for a fun vintage look!
and many blessings for you and your family in your new home:)
