Quick Felt Bow

When I was a kid my mom always put my hair in a pony tail with a ribbon or bow so to this day I love hair ornaments. And what better accessory for a high bun on your head then putting a big felt's like your a big present (although my husband would disagree and try to return me…or re-gift me)!

Need a big felt bow? Well here you go, it is super easy…

Needle and thread
Alligator hair clip
Printer for pattern

  1. Print out the pattern below. Using the pattern, cut out one of each piece in felt. I used three different colors. (Use the scale to make sure the print out is the correct size). 
  2. Thread your needle and run a gather stitch up the center or the bow base. Gather tightly and tie off.

  3. Take the large and small heart and place them on top of each other in the center of the bow base. Take the bow center and wrap it around the center of the bow. On the back side sew the ends of the bow center together.

  4. Slip the alligator clip onto the back, slipping it in between the bow center and the back of the bow.

Get the look for less!

Bangles from Spring Shopping Guide

I love Lucky Magazine! Nothing is better than opening my mailbox and finding a new issue. Well yesterday I got the new issue and in the back where they have the shopping suggestions for spring I saw these cute wrapped bangles that resembled the wrapped repurposed bangle tutorial that I posted last spring. With a little time and some embroidery floss you can get the look for less by making your own. If you shop around you can make six for under $10! For my Wrapped Bangle tutorial, click here.
