I have been wanting to make Molly some of these loop hair bows but I didn't know how. I finally found out how to on the Internet. They are really easy! Here's how!
*You will need some korker ribbon of your choosing. Whatever colors or patterns you like that will match with the clothes you want to wear them with.
*clear nail polish, an E6000, a lighter or some other type of instrument to seal your ribbon ends so they won't fray.
*needle and thread
*hot glue gun/hot glue
*alligator prong clip or a barrette
*embellishments for the top
Cut your ribbon into strips of the same length. You will need 2 to 3 different lengths of ribbon. I stacked my bows 2 lengths deep but 3 lengths is really cute too. The length of ribbon size changes how big the circumference of the bow is. So if you want your bow to be about 3 inches in circumference when it's complete, then your first layer of ribbon needs to be 7 inches long. The next layer of ribbon needs to be 6 inches long. And if you did a third layer, it would need to be 5 inches long. You will also want to decrease the amount of layers down too. If you want a bigger bow, cut your ribbon 1 inch longer per layer. Does that make sense? I am a total visual person so I have to see what it looks like to understand. Hopefully this picture will make more sense than my instructions do.
Take your first layer of ribbon all together and fold directly in half with the patterns facing inward.
Put your needle through the center.
Then fan out the layers and put another stitch though so the layers will stay where you want them.
Flip it over so the pattern side is down.
Then take one layer at a time, fold it over and sew it up.
When you are finished with it, you can use either side of the bow because they will look the same.
Then repeat the same procedure for each layer.
After they are all sewn together, hot glue some type of cute embellishment to the top to cover the stitching. Then hot glue it to the alligator prong.
And Wah Lah!
