A brooch you can use wherever you like!!!
This bow is super easy - you don't have to be an expert with the sewing machine.
I used cotton satin for mine.

You will need two rectangles for this bow. One of 20x10 cm, and the other one of 20x8 cm.
I used the same fabric (cotton satin) for both of them - right side out for the big one and wrong side out for the small one. But you can use two different fabrics if you like!
I forgot to make the third rectangle
for the center of the bow when I started. But it's the same as the others, just do what the steps say!
That rectangle is about 3x8 cm. I like to have enough fabric to work with. SO - we need 3 rectangles!!
Take the big rectangle and put one end inside the other, making some sort of napking ring. Leave the tube seam on the inside. You will only need half a cm of overlapping to sew. Pin in place and sew. Repeat with the smaller one - NOT with the center piece.
NOTE: the two rectangles are 20cm long, that means that if you want your bow to look the same as mine, with the little bow being a little bit smaller, you'll have to do this: trim a bit of the tube - about 2 or 3 cm- and repeat the same "napking ring" as before.
I make it 20cm long because I like to decide on the go how I want it to be/look, and then trim the excess.
