My niece has 2 little girls and she told me how hard it is to find cute hair bows that are affordable, so I thought I'd try my hand at making some hair bows. I had a ton of wool felt that I bought for different projects (and never used, of course) and I started by cutting some felt flowers and circles with my nestabillities and cuttlebug. Most of the wool felt went through easily - a couple of the thicker pieces didn't quite cut all the way through, but a couple of snips with the scissors and they looked fine. I sewed the barette (the flat metal snap ones) between two felt flower shapes and attached the smaller felt flowers and button by sewing them on. A few stitches around the outer edge and we have a felt flower barrette. I also made the button myself out of some polymer clay. I do need lots more practice with both the bows and the buttons, but I do like how they turned out. The other two bows are made from some wire-edged ribbon with a button added and a barrette sewn on the back.
Sorry for the funky colored pics. I had a hard time taking pics of these for some reason.
Thanks for pooping in and let me know what you think of my newest crafting ventures.
