Making Hair Bows

Julie has been asking me to make her some hair bows recently, so I decided that yesterday was the day.

I waited until Jordan went down for her nap before I pulled out all my stuff and got to work.



I was watching tutorials on YouTube and tweeting on my laptop while I worked.

Just an FYI... people shouldn't use glue guns unless they know what they're doing. And by people I mean me.

I bought these letters with the intent to make bow holders for Julie and Jordan. I was pretty impressed that they worked out.



Not that it was a terribly difficult thing to try, but I was feeling mighty crafty at that point.

And here are the bows I made...

















Hardly perfect, but they'll do for what I need them for. The girls loved them.

And here are the bows on the girls' bow holders.



And now I can pack away my glue gun until my poor fingers heal!

  7. Wow! You did a great job! And I doubt that once they are in the girls' hair that anyone is going to stand there and tell you they are not "perfect".
