We have already made a collar, shoe laces & a bandana out of the old men's button up shirt.

Let's make my favorite accessory - a cute bow!

1. Cut of both sleeves and the hem of the sleeve. Cut into square (6 in x 6 in) and place them on top of each other.

4. Take a bobby pin and sew the rippled part onto the bow. (You could also sew a safety pin to the back and use it as a brooch!)

So so cute! I at first thought the bow would be an accessory for garments but I love how you put it in your hair!
