Default How to Make a "No-Sew" Rag Bow

I wanted to design a tutorial for a rag bow that didn't require any sewing and would make good use of some of my scrap fabric. I thought it was also a timely tute with Earth Day approaching.

To make the rag bow I used the large Bowdabra, with the bow held tightly together with Bowdabra Bow Wire. I also used the Bowdabra Wire to attach an alligator clip on the bottom.

Here is the tutorial with lots of pictures. Hope you enjoy!

holy crap . . . i would have never thought of doing it this way!

i'm assuming if the wire is pulled tight enough, the raggies won't pull out?

Exactly, the Bowdabra Bow Wire is super strong you can pull it really, really, tight and hold it all together. Also when you pull it super tight it makes the top fabric strips stand up and gives you an awesome rounded look and completely hides the wire.
