Faux Leather Hair Bow Tutorial – Bow Cut File and PDF Template

In this post I’m sharing a hair bow tutorial, bow template cut file and PDF so you can make faux leather bows too. Faux leather bows are easy to make and with faux leather popping up in more and more prints I can’t stop making them! Keep reading for the full tutorial.

The first time I made these bows was around Christmas to add to some decor. Then I made a few bows for my daughters mermaid birthday and I’ve made quite a few since then.

Happy Cut Heat Transfer Vinyl

For the pink bow with the heart I used Happy Cut HTV. Happy Cut is a Happy Crafters heat transfer vinyl that requires lower heat and pressing time.

As many of you know I usually use a heat press but to show how easy Happy Cut is to use I applied it using a home iron on the highest heat setting with no steam. Watch the video I have above to see it in action!

When I made and sold these bows I packaged them by cutting a piece of Kraft cardstick and putting it in a lip and tape cello bag. Then I finished it with a Thank You sticker.
