How to make a funky loopy bow.
You will need.
60mm french barrett clip
mixture of ribbons, korker ribbon, tulle, anything you like.
Spike bow for fillers, I like to stitch and tie. I make my spikes 4″ and 4.5″ long.
Stitched and tied, make up 1 for each side to be added at the end.
Lay your grosgrain or satin ribbons flat on top of each other. I put some clipes to keep it flat, I used 3 9mm and 2 22mm ribbons.
Use a thread and needle with thread about 60cm. Stitch the end of the ribbon to your barrette clip, leave some ribbon over hang.
Now push your ribbons along the clip to make a loop and wrap your
thread around the ribbon and clip. You can use wire if you wish.
Keep making loops a little bigger until you get to the center,
than make them a little smaller rapping the ribbon around the base of each
When you get the the end tie the ribbon to the hole in the clip same as the other side. Cut and seal your ribbon.
This is what it looks like from the bottom
This is what it looks like. Now we have to pull the loops apart.
Slip your fingers in between the loops and pull them opposite sides. Change each loop to mix up the colours. This is a Loopy bubble bow.
To make it funky
we pull the loops apart where the thread is wrapped.
Take your spike bows and push the center into the center of the open loop. Push it right down and tie it. You can tie koker ribbons in the middle of your spike.
Tie with a triple loop. Glue a strip of ribbon across the base of the clip for a neat finish.
You can fill it with anything you like. If your spikes or korker ribbon is to long for your liking just cut and seal it shorter.
Have fun with your creations.
