What you'll do

tutu hair bow holder step 1

Draw and cut out the bodice shape from the foam board. Mine was approximately 10-inches wide and 12-inches tall. Foam board is a challenge to cut, so the edges may look a little rough. Don't worry, it won't be noticeable in the final product.

Cut the stretch knit fabric to be a couple inches wider than the foam board on all sides.

Stretch the fabric over the edges of the foam board and hot glue it in place on the back side of the board. Be sure to stretch the fabric as you go to avoid any wrinkles or creases on the front side. After the glue dries, trim off any excess fabric.
