Using the gap, turn your bow inside out, so that the pattern is showing. A pencil or stick will help you to push out the edges. Sew the gap together to seal the bow shut.

Place your bow through the middle of the hair elastic and tie it on.

Place your two pieces of fabric right side together and sew around the edge, leaving a small gap.
