Default Re: how to make a bow out of fabric

First of thanks everyone for the advice!! i so appreciate it. i need to make three bows out of this piece of fabric & its not that wide & only 2-2 1/2 feet long so i think i will not be able to get but maybe one flower out of it. i think a tuxedo bow would be great! i could definitely get three out of this if i am real careful with what i have. i am not much of a sewer though so could u tell me what u mean by bring your seam to the inside or topstiching? sorry if its a dumb question, but like i said i am a novice at sewing. thanks in advance. u all r so great!!!
