DIY fabric bow belt :D

I am in love with bows <3 They make everything look great (okay, maybe i am exaggerating but you get the point :D) So i made this fabric belt with bow, its super cute and super easy and you don't have to be a sewing master to get it right :D

Items needed:

1. Fabric. (Any kind of fabric will do. I used black cotton fabric)
2. Matching thread.
3. Needle.
4. Sewing machine.
5. Snaps/hooks.


1. Measure you waist and add 6" to it. Cut out a rectangular piece of size waist+6" X 2 times the width+1". Mine was 33" X 3" (i.e. my waist measurement is 25" and i wanted a width of 1")

2. Fold over half an inch of fabric on both sides (large sides of rectangle) Iron it and sew/hot glue it on place. I used a sewing machine to do this but you can hand stitch it as well.

3. Make 3 tubes of sizes:
  • 1.5" X 4.5"
  • 1.5" X 3.5"
  • !.5" X 2"
4. Place the tubes over each other. (Biggest tube to small one)
5. Pinch it in the middle and hand sew it. You can use hot glue as well but i prefer sewing it. You are basically making a bow.

An example on how to make the bow.
6. Place this bow on the end of the long strip of fabric we have sewn above. And hand sew it. You can use hot glue to do so too.

7. Sew or hot glue snaps/hook.

And you get your very own DIYed fabric bow belt :D Easy right?
You can wear it with skirts, dresses, tunic etc. But yeah it is just for decoration, don't use it to hold up any clothing item.
To be honest you don't even need to sew anything. Just use hot glue and then it will be a no sew project :D

I hope you liked it and if so, please leave a comment :)
Thanks for reading :)
