cute stylish bow!
I made this bow to show you how I did the bow on the back of my jacket in my last project.
I took pictures step by step, and I hope you all enjoy and understand my second tutorial ever!
And most of all, I hope you enjoy making your own bow.
I didn't see any tutorials on how to make one like this on the internet, so I just experimented, and came up with this one.
So let's get started!

    Step 1

    Take an old shirt and cut a long strip about 12 inches or so long, and about an inch wide. The longer the strip, the bigger the bow.
    (You can also use ribbon as your strip if you don't want to cut up a shirt. Works just the same I would imagine.
