Sometimes a good looking accessory can be made by using simple things and a little bit of your own ingenuity. This video is a perfect example of the same. The items needed are simply a piece of square cloth to form the bow, a rectangular strip of the same cloth which is used to create the middle "crushed" portion of the bow and a piece of elastic of appropriate length. The first step involves creating the bow itself. Some hand-stitching may be required here. The next step simply involves guiding the elastic through the centre of the bow. Finally, the two does of the bow are stitched together. The stitched portion is then hidden inside the centre of the bow.
