The children I babysit on a regular basis are all girls. There are 3 of them, a 2yr old, a 3yr old and a 5yr old. Oh and they all have blond hair. Total cutie-pies. While helping the 5yr old with her hair one morning we started talking about hair bows. I had noticed she didn’t have many, and asked her if she would like me to make her some. Dumb question right?
I started thinking about it, looking through my craft supplies and fabrics and then started creating. I did end up with some cute ones. So I thought I would share how to make one of them on my blog today.
I used cotton so these are rather stiff, but I think they turned out adorable!
- Cotton Fabric
- Needle and Thread
- Fray Check
- Hot Glue
- Hair Clip
I started by cutting a strip of fabric 4 inches by 18 inches. Then I pressed it in half lengthways.
Using a needle and thread I made a gathering stitch, and scrunched it into a circle.
These were really easy, so of course I had to make a couple! Now I can’t wait until the girls get back from vacation, to see if they like them.
On a side note, who else thinks of Madeline when they see these bows?
Haha! Maybe I ‘m just crazy!
