The female world is full of charm and secrets. One of these is the basic principles of making bows. For many, a bow is a cross-tied ribbon, but in fact, bow patterns can be much more complicated, intricate and effective. In addition, bows are not only a way to hold back hair, but also a great decorative element. The original bow will become a worthy decoration for clothes, bags, bouquets of flowers, dishes and other household items.
To make the bow beautiful and original, you should use a variety of ribbons and braid. The more interesting the texture of the fabric, the more opportunities will open before you. Velvet ribbons, satin ribbons, silk ribbons and thick fabrics look especially good. Remember, the more unusual the ribbon, the simpler the bow should be. If you have a set of humble ribbons on hand, they can be turned into a veritable eruption of folds.
First option. You need to take a tape up to one and a half centimeters wide. Cut it into four pieces. Each is smaller than the previous one by a third. Sew or glue three pieces into a ring and fold so that the seam is in the middle. After that, lay out the segments with a pyramid and fasten them across with the fourth piece of tape. Such a bow will look good on a hoop, dress belt, or gift wrapping.
The second option involves the use of fabrics of different shapes and textures. Take a soft, wide tape and a thin, shiny tape. Place the tape so that it is centered on the tape. You can even glue it in several places. Then tie the resulting ribbon in a bow. The result will delight you, you just need to try.
The third option involves decorating the bow with sequins. Of course, it only applies to those bows that will not be untied. To make a bow of this kind, you need a wide ribbon. Sew a piece of tape with a ring and fold it in half. Repeat this procedure and fold both rings in a crisscross pattern at the seam. Use another segment to tie the two pieces together with the bow. The resulting blank can be decorated with beads or glitter on an adhesive basis. You can also sew or glue the rhinestone into the center of the bow.
A huge variety of options can be realized using the bow technique. The main thing is to carefully look around and choose the right materials. The rest will take shape by itself.
