I’m always in a hurry and I have no time for making bows, so the solution is to have them already prepared. We can make bows with fabric, felt or ribbon. We are going to start with those of fabric.
The steps are the following:
1- Cut two pieces of fabric: a rectangle of 6.3” X 4.3” and a strip of 2.4” X 1.6” (you can adapt these measurements as you prefer).
2- Fold every piece in half (the rectangle along the long side and the strip along the short side) leaving the reverse of the fabric visible, as in the photo. Then sew a backstitching half a centimeter from the edge without closing it completely.
3- Turn the fabric inside out through the unstitched hole, iron them properly and close the seams with hidden stitch.
4- Finally, take the rectangle and fold it through the middle, place the small strip around it and sew it.
You can also make a double bow adding a smaller rectangle (5” X 3.54”):
