bows for girl's day

Emily has been really into hairbows for the past 6 months or so. I had trouble finding what she wanted though (bows with certain things on them, or to go with certain outfits) so I decided to learn how to make them myself. It ended up being easy enough that I made EIGHT pairs of bows to give her on Girl's Day this past monday. (She also got a doll she'd been pining for since December, and a new dress. More about that soon!) I also made an extra Hello Kitty set at her direction for her to give her friend Josie on Girl's Day.

Now, hopefully she will be satisfied with the sheer quantity and stop asking for more hairbows!! (Although, I admit, now everytime I see a really interesting ribbon I'm like....hmmm....I could make a bow out of that!)

What did you say?

Those bows are too cute! Are you hot glueing them to clips, or are they tied on?

Thanks!! The bows are hot glued to alligator clips, which I covered in ribbon first. (Emily's hair is still too fine for regular clips, and since she actually wears them above pigtails the alligator clips work best.) A great idea I saw and copied - flip the alligator clips over so the bow is on the flat side -- they look a lot better on!

Thank you! The alligator clips are a great idea.
