Default HELP! Stupid question of the day :)

I am making DD a pillow case dress for her valentines party that has a ton of color in it and want to make matching bow. I am not liking putting the plain oranges and pinks - I just don't think it matches very well.

So my dumb question: If fuse fabric to ribbon with wonder under, or something like that, could I still make a decent bow? I don't want to waste any fabric because I didn't buy a ton of it. Or should I stitch it? How would I go about incorporating this fabric?

Thanks so much for your help!

Maredith

I have made matching tuxedo bows using the same fabric. I have also made a flower with the fabric from a tut from NBNG>

The flower sounds interesting - maybe as a center? How small can you make the flower? I haven't attempted to make them yet; are they difficult?

Thanks so much!

You could possibly try and do a freehand yoyo if you don't have the template.

Also maybe you could sew strips and do a funky loop type bow with the fabric strips?
