I saw sequin bows on asos.com and thought I wanted to have one too.
But they were about 4Â£ I think which I thought was a little expensive, so I made one of my own, for less than 0.50â‚¬! :D
And a friend already asked me to make her one too :D
Hope you like it!
If you make one, please add a version!! I'm very curious to see the result :D
Take your fabric and cut out 1 big rectangle (length = twice the size you want your bow to be), mine was about 14x5cm, and 1 small rectangle, mine was about 2x4cm.
(in the picture are 2 large rectangles, but I changed my design on the way because it didn't look as pretty as I had in mind..)
Sew the sequins on the fabric in the way you please, just leave some space at the edges, and a gap in the middle of about 1.5cm.
You can also use fabric with the sequins already on (saves you time), and then just cut some sequins off at the edges and in the middle.
Fold the side to the middle so the bad side is faced up.
Now sew the top and bottom (red lines on the picture) and turn inside-out (now the sequins are on the outside). Then sew the middle part closed (blue line).
This is how it looks when you finished the previous step.
Now take your small rectangle, fold it in 2 and sew the long side. Then turn it inside out.
Ripple the middle part.
Sew the small rectangle onto the bow, slightly above the middle,
turn it around the bow and sew the other end slightly under the middle, so it overlaps a little.
(makes it easier to put a pin through it)
Now shine ;)
