Savvy Hair Bow by Savannah Starr 1 - before This top got a lot of great wear but it was time for an upcycle! I cut it apart to create rectangles of fabric to the sizes that I wanted for this project.
Savvy Hair Bow by Savannah Starr 1 For my bow, I started with a piece of fabric about 12″ x 8″. (You can enlarge or reduce the size depending on what size you want your finished bow.) Place fabric wrong side up on work table. Cut pieces of Aleene’s Fabric Fusion Peel & Stick Sheets to fit the inside of your bow fabric. Remove the liner paper and stick the glue side down on the fabric.
 Savvy Hair Bow by Savannah Starr 2 I like to use a craft stick to press around the edges of the Peel & Stick sheets.This helps to transfer the adhesive to the fabric.

 Savvy Hair Bow by Savannah Starr 13 If any of the end pieces are not even, tuck and re-fold them into the bow. If wanted, add a strip of glue to close the ends of the bow.
Savvy Hair Bow by Savannah Starr 14 On fabric like this t-shirt knit that is really soft, I found that I wanted a little bit more body to my bow so I sprayed it with Aleene’s Stiffen Quik. Let dry completely. I use bobby pins to pin the bow underneath my messy bun!
