Hair Bow Holder Tutorial

Hair Bow Holder - The Ribbon Retreat Blog

Hi Ribbon Retreat Readers. This is Katie from ChooChoo Skadoo Quilts, and I am so excited to be back with The Ribbon Retreat to share this super easy and fun bow holder.

Materials Needed:
3 Fat quarters (I used Eden’s Dream by Studio E)
1/4 yrd Heat n Bond
1/4 yrd medium to heavy Interfacing
1-4 different Ribbons (you need 5 pieces @ 18″ each)
Thread
Basic sewing supplies

Take your front and back fabric pieces and interfacing, and cut all 3 to measure 8″ x 10″.

This next step is optional. I chose to applique an “H” on mine because my daughters name starts with an “H”. You could do a heart, a flower or nothing at all. For a quick “How To Applique” stop by my blog, ChooChoo Skadoo.

Once you have appliqued (if you chose to do that), layer your front and back wrong sides together with the interfacing in between. Creating a sandwich.

Pin, all three pieces, in place so that the layers won’t move while sewing.

Then sew around 3 sides leaving the bottom open. I used a cute flower stitch on mine just to add some cuteness but you could do a straight stitch.

After the 3 sides are sewn you will want to trim up all 4 sides to make them look nice and even.

I chose to use my pinking blade on my rotary cutter so that the edges wouldn’t fray. But it is not a have to.

Next measure and mark where you want your ribbons to go. I measured in an 1 1/2″ from each side and marked. Then marked one in the middle. And one in between both sections.

I made each of my ribbons 18″ long. I thought this was a great length but you could do more or less depending on how many bows you think you need to hang on it.

Measure and mark one inch down on each ribbon.

Put the ribbon in between the layers where you marked. Put it in far enough that the bottom of the fabric lines up with the mark on your ribbon. Pin in place.

Repeat with all 5 ribbons. And sew in place. I used my flower stitch again.
