striped metallic hair bow

Today I’m sharing the last project of the Metallic Thread Mini-Series. It has been so fun playing with a new sewing supply!

This project is another very simple project, a bow with a striped metallic touch. I used Gold Heavy Metal thread from Maderia. It’s really fine and nice and sleek to sew with.

For the bow piece, reference one of these tutorials:

-Scrap of chambray
Madeira Heavy Metal Thread
-hair clip
-glue gun

Before sewing up the bow, sew stripes of metallic thread across the front bow piece.

I used glue to finish the bow with the center piece and then I glued it to the clip.

Easy! You can do this technique to anything really! It gives the fabric a slight “quilted” look and a little bit of shine. I’d love to try it on clothing!
