craft: DIY felt bows for the little lady

Today I'm proud to introduce Carrie, a wonderful friend who has become an amazingly inspirational person in my life, always full of energy and kindness. Also a new Pinterest addict follower, Carrie is the momma to a sweet little gal who thinks I'm "awesome" - I mean, who's to argue. I'm thrilled to bring her into the virtual blogging world since she is probably following your blog right now! Visit Carrie on Pinterest!

Put a Bow on It
Ever since the day my husband and I found out our first child was going to be a girl, I was ecstatic and shortly began dreaming of all things girly. And yes, this included bows…lots and lots of bows! Fast forward to today and I have a precious 18-month-old daughter whom I love more than words, and a pile high of bows, which have yet to be used. Why, you ask? My little sweetheart is lacking in the hair department. So, until those lovely locks come in, I will continue to add to her growing bow collection. And thanks to some fellow “pinners” on Pinterest, these felt bows are a great addition!

To create my own felt bows, here are the materials that I used:
  • felt
  • ruler
  • ribbon covered hair clips
  • fabric scissors
  • needle and thread
  • glue gun
To make these beautiful felt bows, visit Sew She Sew's for a detailed step-by-step tutorial (the bow featured on this website is for a headband, but I decided to make it into a clip instead).

Once I made one bow, I realized how incredibly easy they were to make … so I made a few more.


Then I decided to add my own creativity and here’s what I came up with….


All finished! You can make these in every color, for all of the holidays and especially for gifts! Be creative and add some flair!
