Instructions
1. Fold the handkerchief in half to form a triangle. Fold the top of the triangle down to the bottom edge. The handkerchief should now form a trapezoid.
2. Gather together the middle of the trapezoid, and pin it. You should start to see the bow taking shape. Sew the middle together.
3. Cut a 1- to 2-inch piece of ribbon. Position a hair tie behind the middle of the bow, then wrap the ribbon around the middle and the hair tie. Hot glue the ribbon in place.
4. Hot glue a decorative button to the front of the middle of the bow. Your hair bow is now ready to wear!
