The Lilly Bow was inspired by an Urban Outfitters bow my sister let me borrow a couple months back. It was made with a beautiful chiffon fabric, and I knew immediately I needed a hundred more! I love the way this bow dresses up a messy bun or low lazy pony tail. Both of which I am very much ABOUT.
So I played with proportions and techniques and worked really hard to bring this pattern and tutorial to my blog. I hope you love it as much as I do.
One thing I’m picky about with scrunchies is the elastic inside them. Most tutorials use yardage of elastic, but I wanted my favorite hair tie inside instead. The tutorial below shows you how to use your own hair tie and insert it free-moving inside the scrunchie piece.
The Lilly Bow
- About an 1/8th of a yard of fabric (but make sure they cut it straight!)
- Coordinating thread (or close enough)
- 1 Hair Tie

The magical burrito part of this tutorial can be tricky. So I made a slower, more detailed video of just that step for you to follow. I really hope this helps!
I can’t wait to see your bows!
