Fabric of choice (we used mostly linens)
Hair elastics
Sewing machine and matching thread
White paper cut out

Step 1: Cut out two pieces of fabric in an elongated eye shape (ours was about 6 inches long, 3 inches wide)


Step 2: Sew them right sides together, leaving a 1 inch opening. Trim edges

Step 3: Pull the fabric through the hole so it’s now right sides facing out. Don’t both even sewing up the hole, it’ll be covered up when you knot the bow!


Step 4: Pull the elastic through the enter and make a simple bow knot in the middle.
