i think i may have gone a little overboard with the hairbows:)
but really, i couldn’t help myself. Its E’s fault really. first for being so darn cute and rockin the hairbow so well. second because she seems to lose her hairbows left and right. and third, her hair is out-of-control! i’ve ordered more than 30 bows from etsy for her and while i LOVED them and love to support etsy, i can’t afford to keep buying hairbows at the rate she looses them. so, me and my thrifty self decided to order 50 alligator clips off etsy and give it a try myself… and with 50, i’d have plenty to just keep replacing them as she looses them…. that was until i made about 40 in the past two night…. oops:)
they really were easy to make and i made it up as I went. they’re all slightly different, depending on the size of my scrap fabric. and i did them all while watching all the season premiers of our favorite tv shows;) quality time with the hubs right there… he’s still wondering why in the world the child needs that many hairbows. and since i halfway agree… i decided to give some away to you! leave me a comment and i’ll draw a name this weekend and send the lucky winner a handful of them:) how does that sound?
the band in the middle says “free spirit” and unless you’re a fabric junkie like me, that seems pretty silly:) i used the selvage with the printed fabric information on it… fabric nerd right here:)
and of course, i made one with scraps from EVERY dress I made her, so now she can be all matchy-matchy! did you really think i wouldn’t make matching hairbows?
