The cutest bows.
Someone asked for a tutorial for these, so I volunteered. I made the satin, pink one first, which was kinda tricky being that it is slick material, then I made the red and white one. It turned out better, as I was practicing first before I started the how-to pix. The satin one I wasn't too pleased with the corners. They were more rounded than squared, which was the look I was going for.

Turn bow right-side out. Use something with a point but not sharp to push out the corners to a point and roll the edges of the bow to the seam.
Press both the bow and tie as shown. Depending on the material you use and if you choose, you can use starch to make your bow part a tad more stiff. I didn't use any.
Note: I didn't sew the opening shut but it's your choice you want to do that or not.
Accordian roll the bow in the middle, making sure that the seamed edges are both turned in the same direction when done. I made seven folds to achieve this. If you make a larger bow then you may need to fold it more times than I did.
For the practice bows, I made 3 folds, which are slightly smaller.
I didn't actually do the sewing part, I just pinned it for the moment.
With your finger, kinda press and roll the middle to flatten the tie.
Unfortunately at this point, my battery got low on my camera, so...well ya know.
Now you can add a jewelry pin, barrette, clip, earring post or anything else you can think of to wear your bow.
