Last-Minute Green!

If there is one thing you need on St. Patrick's Day, it is a statement piece. I plan on sporting this huge bow in my hair. Making this bow is seriously so easy--and it only takes about 10 minutes--perfect if you're in a pinch! (See what I did there? Pinch? Because it's St. Patrick's Day?)
I love that it is over-sized and playful! Definitely an eye-catcher. Here's how you do it:
Things you'll need:
-- Green fabric (9"x25")
-- Scissors
-- Barrette clip
-- Sewing machine (or needle & thread)
-- Glue gun
1. Cut off one end of the fabric (1" x 9"). Set aside.

Lay remaining 9"x24" right side up. Fold one left side over just past the center.
2. Fold the right side over just past the center so it overlaps left side. Pin top and bottom edges. Sew top. Sew bottom. It will resemble an open-back pillow case.
3. Turn right-side out.
4. Accordion-fold your bow.
5. Pinch together the center. Wrap the remaining strip around the middle. 
6. Sew or glue the ends of the strip to the back of the bow.
7. Glue the bow to the barrette clip.
8. Enjoy!
I had fun styling it with a loose pony tail and with a twisted half-up half-down look.
Next step, a bow for pups. Doodles Weaver sends her regards.
