Satin ribbons are ideal for making cute hair bows. There are different styles of hair bows. You can choose the style you like best. About a yard of ribbon can be sufficient to make yourself a regular length bow. Choose a suitable color satin ribbon. Ideally, it may be about two and a quarter inches wide. Now stretch the ribbon and twist midway. You must fold the ribbon in a loop like manner. Hold the cross over part of the ribbon tightly. You can then improvise on the basic loop by using an additional ribbon. The two ribbons must now be fixed together. Glue or a stitch should do the job. You now have a basic bow. You can add hair clips to the back of your bow and this can now be used as a hair bow for toddlers or school girls.
