Bow Brooch

A while ago I saw this really cute blouse on Pinterest. Pinterest tells me a while ago = 20 weeks:

I loved it! I decided that it's just a black tee with a big bow brooch. I thought, "I can make that" What can I say, I'm Wayward?

But this craft is easy. Really easy.

Materials:
36" x 6" of fabric
Matching thread

Tools: 
Scissors
Sewing Machine
Iron

Here's my fabric, recognize it?

Photobucket
First, fold your fabric length wise (hot dog) with the wrong side facing out. Then press the fold. You don't have to do it this way, but I like to because then I don't need to use pins when sewing.

Sew a seam along the edge of the fabric (but don't do it in the dark like I did...or my camera makes it look like I did)

Photobucket 

Pull inside out, hem the bottoms of the tube you've just made. Iron again. Tie in a bow. Adhere a pin back to the back like this one

Photobucket

Total it took about 15 minutes from start to finish (I'm guessing, I got distracted)

Next time I think I'll make it even bigger!

PS Happy Birthday to my best friend, BLBP. She is the recipient of the lovely Blue Pigs quilt by my mom from last fall.
