PicMonkey Collage

Would you like to have a leather bow like Ariana Grande or Miley Cyrus? You’ll need just a just a small scrap of leather, or faux leather, about 4 1/2” x 3 1/2”, a narrow strip about 1”x 3”, a metal barrette clip, rotary cutter, disappearing fabric pen, hot glue, and embroidery thread. Now just follow the tutorial step by step.

  1. 1. Measure and draw a rectangle 4 1/2”x 3 1/2” on the leather, and cut it out as straight as you can, using the rotary cutter. I drew on the other side (suede side), so I didn’t bother erasing my marks.
  2. Cinch at the middle by folding the leather like an accordian.
  3. Tie some embroidery thread around the bow to secure. Trim the thread.
  4. Hot glue the end of the strip to the underside of the barrette, let cool.
  5. Wrap the strip around the bow  and hot glue on the underside to secure. Let cool and trim the leftover.
  6. Finesse the bow until it takes on the shape you like.inesse the bow until it takes on the shape you like. steps (1).jpg

They are 10cm (4 inches) wide at the top (the part that goes around your waist) so what you need to do is work out how many panels you need to go around your waist.

3. Cut them out around the template. Make sure to match the template carefully!
