 Girls Stacked French Hair Bow Tutorial

As a mother of two girls, I know firsthand that no outfit is complete without a bow! If you don’t believe me, just ask my daughter! 😉 She’ll happily inform you that every outfit needs a bow, and if one bow is good…two bows are even better!

If you are using a cutting machine to cut these bows make sure to check out my Cricut Hacks post to help you save time and money!!

I love making bows for my girls and I’ve been dying to try my hand at making some chunky french 3 layer bows!

I finally had a little bit of free time over the Christmas break to make a pattern and sit down to for a night of crafting. I actually made all 6 of these bows in less than an hour! How’s that for a quick and easy project?

You can make these bows using your cutting machine or you can cut them out by hand! They come together in a snap and you’ll get the look of a boutique bow for a fraction of the price! I’m all about the boutique look without the boutique price-tag!

Plan a bow making party with your friends or even use these templates at a baby shower! They make for wonderful gifts and you can even resize the bow to get the desired shape/size within Cricut Design Space.

The gold, pink and white bow were made using the template in the normal size. The hot pink and rose gold were adjusted to be smaller and wider.

These bows can be made from leather, faux leather, felt, paper or laminated fabric. Cut them out of Iron-On (HTV) and adhere it to felt or fabric to add a little extra sparkle. Use them for hairbows or even to decorate cards or packages.

The possibilities are endless and I can’t wait to see what you make! Be sure to tag me on Instagram @sweetredpoppy with your creations!!!

Bow Tutorial
First, upload the SVG to Cricut Design Space. You can resize the bow by unlocking the image on the lower left-hand corner. You can make it wider or taller depending on the look you are hoping to achieve. The size provided is perfect for girls aged 3-12. For babies or pigtail bows, adjust it to a smaller size.
 If you are going to cut the bows by hand, download the file, print it and cut it out by hand.

Girls French Hairbow Tutorial & Free Pattern

Cut out the template and trace around it on the back of the leather with a washable marker. Cut out the design using long slow snips to avoid any jagged edges.

Place a small line of glue along the middle of the bow and fold the outside edges into the center. Repeat this step with the smaller bow.
Place a small amount of hot glue on the middle of the larger bow and place the smaller bow on top of the larger bow. Let cool.
Put a small circle of glue on the bottom layer and place the bows on top, making sure to center everything. Wrap the center around the entire bow.
Open up the hair clip and place the bottom of it under the flap with a small dot of hot glue. Press firmly, and let cool.
