Lace Bows make the cutest hair bows for babies, little girls and even pets, but if you purchase them in a retail store you are going to pay anywhere from $5-$10 dollars so I’m going to show you a quick and easy DIY No Sew Lace Bow Tutorial that takes less than 10 minutes to make and cost about $1.00 or less per bow.
Here is what you will need:
- Lace Hem Tape (You can get this in different sizes from 3/4 inch to 1 ¾ Inches)
- Hot Glue Gun
- Hair Clip or Stretchy Headband
Determine what size you want your No Sew Lace Bow to be, if you want a small bow then the 3/4 inch hem tape is a good size to use; however if you want a medium size bow then you should use the 1 3/4 inch hem tape. For this tutorial I’m going to show you how to make a small No Sew Lace Bow; however I’ll include the instructions on how to make a medium size bow as well.
Step 1: For a small bow you should cut 2 pieces of Hem Tape that are about 5 Inches long and 1 piece that is about 2 1/2 inches long. If you are making a medium size bow then you should cut 2 pieces of hem tape 7 inches long and one piece that is 3 1/2 inches long.
Step 2: Start with one of the pieces and fold the two sides so that they meet in the center. Then take the hot glue gun and glue the both sides to the center to keep them in place.
Step 5: Take your fingers and Squish the two pieces together (accordion style) in the very center; however if your fabric is too narrow to fold in an accordion manner then you can just squish your fabric so that it folds in half (The bow I made was to small so I ended up having to fold it in half instead of accordion style), you can see from the picture below. Add a tiny dot of glue to keep it in place
Wrap small piece around the center
After wrapping the small piece around the bow glue it in place. This is what the No Sew Bow will look like prior to attaching it to a hair clip or band
Step 7: Attach the bow to a hair clip or headband (I used a stretchy headband)
When attaching the Bow to the headband only use a dab of glue in the center of the bow
Now you have the perfect No Sew Lace Hair Bow for your little girl!
