CUT­TING OUT

Step one From the print fab­ric cut out:

Bow body: cut two pieces, 20x10cm (8x4in). Bow cen­tres: cut two pieces 5x3.5cm (3x1!⁄"in).

MAKINGTHE BOW S

Step one Take one bow centre and fold the top long edge over to the centre with wrong sides (WS) to­gether.

Step two Fold the bot­tom long edge up so it just over­laps the centre to make a long sausage. Re­peat with the other bow centre.

Step three On the two bow pieces, mark the hor­i­zon­tal and ver­ti­cal centre lines on the WS. Step four Fold the two long edges WS to­gether so they meet at the centre along the marked line. Next, fold the two short edges in­wards to the marked cen­tral short line. Pin in place.

Step five Sew the two folded edges down.

Step six Gather the centre of the folded sewn strip with a run­ning stitch to form a bow.

Step seven Wrap the folded bow centre around the mid­dle of the bow and stitch in place.

Step eight Dab some glue onto the back of the shoe clip and press onto the back of the sewn bow. Once dried, sew it on for strength.
