Tips for Making a Leather Hair Bow

I would use the patterned leather as a backing. The solid color should be used for the front piece to make it pop!

Don’t forget to place your leather pretty side down and secure all 4 sides with masking tape. This keeps the leather from sliding around on your mat.

Work with each piece separately, then you will attach them with hot glue.

Once you make one of these cute leather hair bows, you’ll get hooked! Next thing you know, your friends and family will be asking for them. Maybe even start an Etsy store to sell them?

    Upload the hair bow cut file into design space.

    You will want to cut the main bow piece with your solid leather and your backing/middle piece with your patterned leather. Remember to place your leather pretty side down and secure all 4 sides with masking tape. This keeps the leather from sliding around on your mat. Cut all of your pieces using these settings in design space.

    Run your cuts.

    We will work with the main piece first. Take the first side and line it up with the middle. Secure it with a drop of glue or hot glue.

    Do the same with your second side, making sure to line it up with the first before securing.

    The put glue on your back piece and secure the bow on top. Make sure to line it up correctly, hot glue seals fast.

    Now we want to add our middle piece. Flip your bow over and attach the first end to the bow in the middle.

    Wrap it all the way around and secure it in the back with another drop of glue.

    Attach the alligator clip to the back and you are finished.
