Saturday night I decided it was time to make some more bows for my girls. I always try to make my girls bows/flowers/hair things because I am too cheap to buy them. I feel like if it's something I can do myself, why should I pay someone else a lot more to do it? I am a do it yourselfer (and yes, that's totally a real word!) I feel that way about a lot of things and sometimes get in over my head because I am sure something can't be as difficult as it seems. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't. Anyway, back to the bows...
These are the types of bows I usually make. I guess they aren't really bows, but flowers. I think they're darling and I have quite a collection that I use in my girls' hair every day. Here are a few that I've made:
Tada! I think they turned out quite well. Especially for my first time. I love the red ones because the ribbon I used for those was a little bit wider and thicker and they seem to hold their shape a little bit better. I found instructions for those here.
I love the butterfly and dragonfly ones because they are more unique. This site also had a bee and a ladybug that were pretty cute.
