Sometimes the simplest things in life are the most rewarding. Who would have thought a person could get such total enjoyment from a bow? Seriously…I promise you will be absolutely delighted if you whip one of these up. Here’s how to make a perfect bow…in less than 10 minutes. (Burlap ribbon sources at the end.

When I made my grain sack bow I was not able to use the stapler for the last step. The layers of fabric were too thick and I jammed my stapler. So I used a needle and embroidery floss and put a couple of stitches in it to hold it all together. (Grain sack bow pictured below.)
Obviously you don’t have to use burlap ribbon. Any kind will work but I recommend ribbon at least 4 inches wide so the bow has some presence. Also, my measurements for the 2 longer pieces are totally random. You can make your bow any size under the sun.
