Easter Boutique Bow Tutorial


I love putting bows on my little girl. The bigger the better! When I found out I was having a girl I scoured the internet for the cute boutique bows that I have seen all over. When I found out how much they cost I decided to make them myself.

Easter Boutique Bow Tutorial
  • 1 1/2" purple ribbon
  • 7/8" pink ribbon
  • 7/8" light blue ribbon
  • 3/8" white ribbon
  • pink thread
  • needle
  • scraps of felt in pink and purple
  • glue gun
  • silver claw clip
  1. Take the 7/8" ribbons and cut into 5" strips. You want to cut three of each color. Cut the 1 1/2" purple ribbon into 18" inches.
  2. Fan out the strips of 5" ribbon alternating colors. Sew a running stitch down the middle. Pull tightly and sew through and wrap around a few times. Sew through one more time and cut and knot thread ends. 
  3. Take 1" purple ribbon and form into figure 8. Bring the top and bottom of the "8" towards the middle and pinch together. Sew the middle, wrap around a few times and then sew through again. Cut and knot the thread ends. 
  4. Hot glue the purple bow on top of the fanned strips.
  5. Cut pink felt into a 2" x 4" inch square. Fold in half and hot glue closed. Cut into an egg shape. Cut thin strips of purple felt and hot glue to egg. Trim strips from egg. 
  6. Hot glue to the middle of the bow. 
  7. Hot glue white ribbon to clip. 
  8. Hot glue covered clip to the back of the bow. 
**Tip: To keep ends of ribbon from fraying burn slightly with a lighter.

  1. What a cute bow for a little girl! My great niece is still a bit too young but I think I'll ask my Mom (her Great Granny) to make a couple pf bows up for her since I am a major klutz!

  18. Oh yeah, I love this post! Things like this are easy if you have someone show you, but they are NOT easy (for me) if you try to do them on your own!
