No Sew Hair Bow



  • Fabric (I recycled a cotton knit top)
  • Aleene’s Fabric Fusion Peel & Stick Sheets
  • Scissors
  • Aleene’s Stiffen Quik Fabric Stiffening Spray
  • Bobby pins (to put bow in hair)


  1. This top got a lot of great wear but it was time for an upcycle! I cut it apart to create rectangles of fabric to the sizes that I wanted for this project.

  2. For my bow, I started with a piece of fabric about 12″ x 8″. (You can enlarge or reduce the size depending on what size you want your finished bow.) Place fabric wrong side up on work table. Cut pieces of Aleene’s Fabric Fusion Peel & Stick Sheets to fit the inside of your bow fabric. Remove the liner paper and stick the glue side down on the fabric.

  3. I like to use a craft stick to press around the edges of the Peel & Stick sheets.This helps to transfer the adhesive to the fabric.

  4. Peel off the liner paper to expose the adhesive.

  5. Fold in the sides of the fabric starting with the shorter sides first.

  13. Add a small piece of Aleene’s Fabric Fusion Peel & Stick Sheet to end, remove liner, wrap around bow center overlapping until you have achieved desired look for center of bow.

  14. If any of the end pieces are not even, tuck and re-fold them into the bow. If wanted, add a strip of glue to close the ends of the bow.

  15. On fabric like this t-shirt knit that is really soft, I found that I wanted a little bit more body to my bow so I sprayed it with Aleene’s Stiffen Quik. Let dry completely. I use bobby pins to pin the bow underneath my messy bun!
