Bows

I had mentioned that since my seer sucker shorts didn't work out, I decided to take the fabric and make some hair accessories. Tyler and I went to Nashville on Saturday to see The Tree of Life (Which was incredible. If you get the chance go see it.) and I wore one of the bows and we took some pics of it. Sadly, those photos got deleted...so we took some new ones of just the bows.


I've always loved bows, and lamented the fact that the ones I wanted were always too expensive to justify purchasing. I didn't realize how insanely easy they are to make! So from now on, I will be making my own.



The fabric behind the bows I got yesterday and I'm sooo excited to make something out of it, isn't it lovely? I'm already on to my next sewing project, which is a blouse. If the pattern works out well I'll probably make this fabric into a blouse, and maybe a skirt or dress as well.

  7. What a great idea! I've been wanting to make some similar bows for myself, but my mom always tells me they're wierd. Forget that, these are adorable. And that other fabric is lovely too, so I'm looking forward to see what you do with it!

  9. Oh, these bows are truly just the cutest! You should to a tutorial on how to do them because I've always wondered myself how to make them... I'd love to make one to clip in my hair, but I'm not particulary crafty. Are these bows hard to make...?

    Thank you ever so much for dropping by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment! You have such a darling and sweet little blog! <3

  12. Oh, I'm loving that little sweet stripe print. I have something similar in my stash, and now I think I may have some inspiration to do a little bowtie for my son! (And dare-I-say, a matching hair bow for mommy?)

  13. What a fantastic idea- they came out so pretty! I'd feel so badly about my shorts not working out, and this is a great way to still get to make use out of them. The new fabric you bought is lovely as well! x
