DIY No Sew Baby Bow from Bias Tape (in 2 Minutes)

DIY baby bows

I always swore I’d never put a bow in Edie but I might be starting to warm up to the idea, especially if it’s really small, simple, high quality fabric. Surprisingly, I’ve had a hard time finding those. So I decided to try and make my own! It was super simple, especially if you use bias tape. No sewing involved and under 2 minutes to make.

Add a small elastic band before you start making your bow, right in the center so it becomes part of the know. This is what I ended up doing for Edie because her hair is so fine.

Thanks so much for using my tape on this adorable project! Such a great use of my leftovers!! I might cut up some short strips to sell in packs in the shop for this use and will link to your tutorial. Thank you!

Hi, liv. Do you still have your shop on etsy? The link provided will not work. Thanks.

Super cute! My daughter is close to the same age, but she won’t keep bows in her hair. No matter what I try, she gets them out!

So adorable! Does she just let you put stuff in her hair? My girls are the same age and I have to wrestle them to the ground to get a bow in and then they just yank it out. And forget hats- they cry as though the hat is lined with thorns.

Edie been really good with bonnets, we were really consistent with putting them on when we went outside so she now knows to grab one when it’s time to go. In terms of clips and bows, we’ve just started and sometimes she won’t notice and other times she will and tries to pull it off
