Fork bows are genius! By using a fork as a guide, you can make perfect bows every time. I had never been able to create a bow without the loops being cockeyed or just plain crumpled. I avoided making bows for a long time.
This pin comes from the blog Eskimimi Makes. I followed her tutorial purely from the step-by-step image that has been repinned multiple times on Pinterest.
How sweet! I used a ribbon with a print on one side, solid colour on the other, which made the centre of the bow solid brown.
The fork helps make the bow perfectly even. If you want a bigger bow, you could use a large serving fork or salad tong, as long as the fork has four tines.
Grab some ribbon and try out this fork technique! Now I want to make bows to attach to everything in sight.
