Start ironing the neck band the same way bias tape is created, fold in both sides 1/4" and press
Fold again and press, you will be sewing along the open edge
Fold the ends in to finish off the ends and then sew down the long ends and short ends as close to the edge as possible
cut a piece of fleece, stiff fabric or interfacing, iron on if its fusable
Fold right sides together and sew along the long edge making sure you secure the fleece within that stitch
Flip this piece right side out and sew the two short edges together with a zigzag strip

After Folding the bow pinch the centre and tac it with a few stitches, use the small 4" piece and wrap it around the front of the bow and place the neck strap against the back of the bow placing the 4" piece around the neck strap and then hand sew everything in place.
you can use buttons or clasps to secure it or sew on some velcro making the soft part a little longer so it can be adjustable for a few years
