Sandy Sandler, the creator of the Bowdabra is here to show you how to easily make an adorable soccer ponytail bow with Bowdabra. How cute is this? And it is so simple to make you will want to make a bunch for the whole team! So let’s get started.
First, take the Bowdabra tool and ruler and lay that over the Mini Bowdabra.
Next, cut a piece of Bowdabra bow wire. Then, fold it in half and insert it into the Bowdabra. You will have a loop on one side and two loose wires on the other side. This will serve as your slipknot. Tuck the ends under to stay out of the way while you are making your bow.
Now, take the soccer print ribbon and fold it in half to find the center. Then, place the right side down into the Mini Bowdabra.
Next, bring one side of the ribbon around and scrunch it down. Then, twist it and pull it through the loop leaving the tail facing right side up. Now, take the opposite side of the ribbon and bring it around making an X shape and scrunch down. Twist the tail and pull it through both loops. To finish to bow push in the bottom loop and follow with the top loop for a boutique-style bow. (You can also make this bow by making the tails first, but in this tutorial, you use only a piece of ribbon)
Now scrunch everything down with the Bowdabra wand. Then, insert the loose wires through the loop and pull tight while the bow is still in the Bowdabra. Then, remove the bow from the Bowdabra, separate the ends, turn to the back and tie a knot. Tie a double knot for extra security.
Attach the ponytail holder using the excess bowdabra bow wire.
Now shape out your bow and dovetail the ends. To dovetail, fold the ribbon in half and cut at an angle away from the fold. You have the most adorable soccer ponytail bow!
