I was thinking about making a hair bow holder for my girls. Doing their hair is not their favorite thing, and I figured if they got to pick out a bow every day, it might make it a little easier. I love the hair bow holder’s I’ve seen using an old frame, but I’m a person who has lots of fabric…so I figured I’d try making one of that. Here’s the hair bow holder: quilted version.
To make your hair bow holder, you’ll need:
– a piece of fabric for the front and the backing *Mine are 13″ x 13″
– a piece of batting the same size as the fabric for the front
– strips 4″ x 13″ (or whatever length you made your front and backing fabric) *I used 6
– 2-3 strips for the binding (depending on how big you make yours) *I used 2
Fold your 4″ strips in half and press to make a line down the middle of the strip
Open the strip and press one side up to the line.
Then the other…
Fold the strip all the way in half and press.
Sew the strip closed.
Repeat until you’ve finished all your strips
Lay out the backing, batting and front fabric and set the strips across the quilt sandwich
Pin the strips in place and sew a zig zag stitch down the left and right side of the hair bow holder
Trim right on the edge of the zig zag
If you want, you can sew straight, top stitched, down the front of all the strips. I sewed two so the strips to clip the hair bows on were separated into thirds.
Add some binding and you’re done!
Also, I have a fun giveaway with Christmas coming up. This fabric panel is from the line called, “Jingle” by Kate Spain. It includes instructions and cut outs to make two cute stockings!
