ONE BOW MEASUREMENTS. For TWO Bows, double the pieces.

a. Flower

i. Use the diagram provided above to draw the flower piece on your fabric.

ii. Finish the straight edge of the flower piece with a rolled hem or tight zig zag stitch. This edge will be the ruffled “petals” of the flower.

iii. Finish the curved edge of the flower piece with standard serger stitch. This is going to be the bottom or underside of the flower.

iv. Gather the bottom (curved) edge of the flower.

Place two gathering stitches along the curved edge.

Set your machine thread tension to “0” and the stitch length to the longest possible. Sew two parallel lines along the curved edge (place first stitch ¼” from the edge, second stitch ½” from the edge), leaving several inches of thread at the beginning and at the end of the seam. Do NOT backstitch.

Pull the bobbin threads to gather the flower. The gathered edge should be about 3” long. Tie off the threads and distribute the gathers evenly.

v. Starting from the narrow end, start wrapping the flower around itself. Be careful not to twist the fabric – the right side should always be facing away from you. Use a couple hand stitches periodically (about every three revolutions or wraps) to hold the bottom edges of the flower together. When you reach the end, secure the end to the flower with a few extra stitches.

b. Bow

i. Finish the long edges of the bow pieces with a rolled hem or tight zig zag.

ii. Fold one strip in half so the raw edges meet in the center, right sides out. Overlap the raw edges by ½”, then top stitch them in place. Repeat with the other strip.
