Towards the end of last year I designed a series of Cut and Sew fat quarters on Spoonflower for creating fabric bows. The fat quarters consist of five pairs of patterns that can be cut out and sewn together to create cute bows that can then be attached to hair clips or brooch backs, or used as accessories on clothing and bags. Instructions for putting the bows together are included on the fat quarter panel.
The beauty of the panels is that you only need one fat quarter to create 5 different bows as opposed to having to use 5 different fat quarters in each of the designs.
This would be an ideal project for a young sewist or a beginner, but would be a quick and easy make for the more experienced sewist. And if you don't sew, the bows can still be made using fabric glue instead.
Attach the finished bows to hair bands or hair clips or create a fabric band and wear them as a bow tie.
Watch this short video to see how easy it is to put the bows together then head over to my Spoonflower shop to get the fat quarter panels.
I like bold patterns, florals, foliage and bright colours.
