Have you seen the gorgeous new pack of felt in the Hydrangea Hippo shop? It features rich, jewel toned colors that are perfect for a multitude of projects. When I got my felt, I wanted to create bows right away. My daughter's are obsessed with cute hair accessories and I'm always willing to go out on a crafty limb to indulge them. Here's what I came up with...
I made a larger felt bow out of the purple felt. I used hot glue to assemble the bows and they went together really quickly. Cutting the felt took about 20 minutes, and gluing them only took about 10. I usually pin bows of this type in their hair with bobby pins, but all of my bobby pins have magically disappeared. I'm sure I'll find them in the baby doll bin later.
This bow is my favorite. I used a pom pom flower tutorial for ideas, but I used a longer and wider strip of felt to make a fuller flower for an older girl. I've already gotten requests for more colors from my daughters.
If you make your own bows, I'd love to see them linked in the comments!
