Big Texas Hair Bow Start with 1 yard of 1.5″ ribbon. Cut 31″ and set aside the spare 5″ piece. Mark five 6″ sections. Run a double-thread stitch through the marks on the ribbon. Pull snugly and gather the ribbon. Shape the loops as you tighten for a pretty arrangement. Tie a knot in the center of the 5″ piece of ribbon. Hot glue the back of the knot in the center of the bow. Wrap 1 end around the back and glue in place. Wrap the 2nd end around a hair clip pin before gluing.
