"Tie it In a Knot"

The past week, I have "dibbled" in this..."dabbled" in that..a lot of different projects from making a stain glass window out of tissue paper, flat stanley project to bows for my daughter's hair. I am always talking about "ribbon" ...one thing I have loved since my daughter was just weeks old was bows in her hair. I couldn't wait till her hair was long enough for a bow. Through the years, I have bought my share of bows...big ones, little ones, ones that shimmer and shine.

One day, I was at a kid's boutique looking at some great "bows". Then it was like a "lightbulb" moment..why am I am buying these when I could make them. One of the moms at school, saw my daughter wearing one of the bows I made and asked if I could make her one. I reassured her that she could probaly do it with her handy dandy glue gun. It is so easy!

From buttons to even scrapbook "products"...you can make an awesome bow...Guess what? I don't even tie a bow...it's pieces glues together. So don't feel weary if you can't tie that "bow"..if you can loop a piece of fabric? You can do it!

I love the bows, especially with the buttons on them! I wish my girls would still wear hair bows, but, oh no, they're "too old for THAT". Makes me a little sad. :(

You are so creative! I didn't get this gene from anyone in my family (if anyone in my family has it). I love bows and so does Thing 4, not Thing 3 though because that would mean I would have to actually brush her hair! :) Ang

Very cute! I have boys, so I completely skipped the bows, and frills! So sad!

Ruby Red Slippers said...

I wish, I wish, I wish I had someone to put bows in!!! The boys are NOT having that, and Lucy will eat them, so I guess I will make them for my neighbor's daughters...Hey! That could be a Christmas present!!! Thank YOU!!!

Cute, CUTE bows...we had enough to fill a store when Lexi would wear bows. Now she will still wear a ribbon in her hair and even cute scrunchies but sadly, no more bows.... :(

I love ribbons too, strange that Sophia never wears them. I guess that can be my weekend project. I LOVE your daughters curly, red, hair.

I love those bows! So cute! I wish my daughter had more hair, enough to be able to use one of the bows. I will remember this idea for when she does! :)

Sandy Toes, way too cute. I need to start doing that for my little girl. I just need to get everything organized in my spare bedroom. But that takes time, energy, money, and supplies. I need to look around for some ideas. Take care and I love your blog.

Fantastic! I am about to endeavor into the same. I have so much ribbon I haven't touched yet. Thanks for the ideas.

Diva Ma said...

These are sooo cute! Miss Missy would love some of these. I keep saying that I am going to try my hand at making them but haven't gotten around to it. Maybe I will.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. The battery had fallen out of her nose BEFORE we went to the doctor. She found it in her room. Kids!

Love the bows and the buttons! So, cute!

Em @ Bunch of Scrap said...

My daughter is 7 and at one time had probably 50 bows... she has about 3 today because we lost them everywhere! I used to make them too, especially after I bought a bunch of expensive ones and they disappeared! The button bows are so cute... I wonder if she could make it through an entire day of school with one in? Worth a try!
