I made this bow following instructions at an apple a day. It was very easy to make; the most difficult part was to decide whether to make it into a barrette or a brooch. I don't really wear barrettes, although I adore the way they look on others. I'm not sure I'll wear the brooch either, but well, it was fun to make! And if I at some point decide to wear it in my hair, it'll be easy enough to attach to a clip.
The back side looks quite horrifying, because, you know, who wants to sew when you can use a glue gun?
