Christmas in July Decorations: Satin Ribbon Bow with Crochet Edging

Design a beautiful Mini Bowdabra bow by adding a crocheted edge to satin ribbon. I used a 3/8″ satin ribbon and the Sharp Satin Ribbon Bow for Christmas in July Gifts Crochet Hook to create stunning holiday bow. I am ecstatic with the final look of the bow but it did take about 45 minutes to complete it. In my opinion, this is a great Christmas in July project. If you start making the bows now you could have several elegant bows perfect for gift toppers this December. This style bow would also be wonderful to reuse and attach to tree ornaments.

Materials Needed:


1. Begin with the crochet thread, 18.5″ of 3/8″ satin ribbon, and the sharp crochet hook.
