Lotus Flower Bow

Here is a super simple flower bow that you can make in no time at all!
Really the hardest part is making sure your fabric is 2 sided!

I inherited a grandma's sewing stuff and in all of it I found this...

No it is not a roll of toilet paper, it's bias tape!
Since I don't think I will ever be lining anything with this it's perfect for my project!
As for you doing this at home... you will have to cut 2 inch squares out of a any double sided fabric.

Fold your squares in half diagonally but off mid-line as shown,

and then in half again.

Then take a needle/thread and sew it in place. I swear you don't need to know how to sew to do this! It doesn't have to look pretty no one will see the sewing! It's just really putting the needle through the center, up and down... you can do this!

Then continue sewing new squares on, half way through your flower will look like this.
This is about 7 or so squares it's not exact just until it looks good.

Then add 7 to 10 more and you will end up with this!

HINT: When you are done always keep your thread on so that you can sew your flower to your clip. Why... because hot glue is nice but when it's sewn you know you have reinforcements!
After I have it sewn on to my clip then I slip in the glue.

After it's on a clip you have a new pretty flower for you or your pretty girl!
