St. Patrick’s Day Half Bow

St. Patrick's Day Half Bow - {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}

I got a comment from Becky asking about St. Patrick’s Day half bows.

So I came up with this!

Becky, I hope this is what you were looking for! If not, let me know. 🙂

The bow turned out super cute either way, but I would be more than happy to make another bow for you.

I used ribbon from the Luck of the Irish Seasonal Ribbon Mix.

I used Emerald Solid Grosgrain Ribbon in 1 1/2″ to make a Pinwheel Technique bow (click the link for instructions).

Then I used Luck of the Irish St. Patrick’s Day Ribbon in 7/8″ to make half of a Pinwheel bow. Instead of 4 loops, I only used two.

I topped off the bow using Apple Solid Grosgrain Ribbon in 3/8″ to make an Inside Out Technique bow.

I put all the layers together by threading my needle through all layers and then tightening the thread and taking a few stitches to the back.

I lined my clip using the Lime Striped Ribbon from the Luck of the Irish Ribbon Mix.

Then I finished off the bow with a knotted center using White Solid Grosgrain in 3/8″.

I turned out so cute, I love it!

I have tons more St. Patrick’s Day bows to share with you, so watch for them. 🙂

    So cute! I saw one where they made a clover out of ribbon. It looked so fun! I’ve been crocheting little green clovers for a garland but I may save some out to add to a bow.
