    Step 8

    THE FOLLOWING STEPS COULD GET A LITTLE TRICKY, SO WORK THROUGH IT SLOWLY
    Thread the needle in the corner of the strip

  • Step 9

    sew this through your bow (not in the center though)

  • Step 10

    The stitch it over the top and through, do this until you get to the end of the strip

  • Step 11

    Wrap the strip around those stichings with the fabric strip 2 times and sew that together by stiching through the wrapped round strips a basic up through and down through stitch

  • Step 12

    OK THIS MAY BE THE HARDEST STEP IN THIS WHOLE HOW-TO PLEASE BE PATIENT [:
    Open out your clip and wrap the rest of the strip around the clip and sew that tight

  • Step 13

    OK NOW YOU CAN RELAX A LITTLE! [:
    now, if you don't do this step everytime you put your hairbow in it will slip of the clip! :/
    open the left loop of the bow and make the stiches shown in the picture or you can do different stiches to mine, as long as the bow stays with the clip with the stitches you're gonna be alright

  • Step 14

    now mkae knots in the thread to secure the clip and NOW SLIDE IN YOUR HAIR!!!

    Well Done! [:

    I am hoping to start a business making these

This is cute and simple....but there are MUCH better ways to attach the middle piece.

It should be folded so it does not fray.

This saves a lot of money making it on your own than buying it in the store. Thanks much.
