DIY: How To Make A Bow (sewing basics)

Hi there!

Today I'm bringing it back to the basics and teaching you guys how to sew a simple bow (and turn it into a cute hair accessory).

Learning how to sew a bow, and getting really good at it, was an important step for me in learning how to sew my own clothes! If you feel totally overwhelmed by my DIY dress and skirt videos, then give this one a go first. I promise that if you can master a bow, making your own clothes is not much more of a stretch - and bow-making will give you all the skills that you need to make something more complicated.

Let me know how you go using the hashtag #diyannika on instagram!
