Made 2 Match Bows!!

Happy Friday!! I had a wonderful friend over today to make bows for our daughters. So the kids played nicely while we worked on bows -oh what fun.  I started making bows this past summer and I know for many can be very intimidating- it was for me.  I watched various tutorials on youtube to learn.  My favorite was from hair hardware ( Here is one of hers - I don't follow her tutorial exactly but gave me good direction)  It took a lot of practice and bows to get where I am today but since it is a small part of my business I do get the practice in.  However my poor daughter sometimes gets left out so TODAY I made bows to match some summer outfits I have been saving.  I gathered up the outfits I needed to make bows for.

And I pulled out my ribbon stash.  It is also so nice to make bows with friends not only because you enjoy the company but their ribbon stash too.

I didn't quite finish by the time our bow making session ended but I felt there was a spool or two of ribbon I needed to complete my goal.  Although I don't think I did that bad and had a great time making these hair pieces of art.

Enjoy your weekend.

  9. Wait a minute wait a minute I am back!! I watched the video and I get it but I have one question - what do you do to the bow once it is done? Does it get glued to something? What am I missing? Okay that was three questions but you get the idea. Thanks :)

  15. These are so cute! Wish my little girl would still wear hair bows...but she's 9...and thinks she's "too old". Maybe so, but they are so pretty!

  19. The bows are so cute! I remember when Emily use to wear these kinds of bows, but now she's almost 13... I have seen her wear a few from when she was smaller. She's always been a girly girly...
