I apologize about the link party! I completely forgot about it until I was going to bed and have a serious head cold which I blame. Yesterday was just plain AWFUL. Especially since the baby has it too. Please join us next week for the "Get Your Brag On" Party!
I don't have much patience for hair bows and don't care for big ones....like anything bigger than 2". I know I'm not normal. I saw something on pinterest the other day that said, "The bigger the Bow, the better the Mama".....if this is true I have failed! Kaylee didn't wear a single elastic band as a baby. I tried gluing tiny bows on her hair at about 4 months old, but even that was a pain. When she had more hair I started getting tiny clips or barrettes and then ordered some little bows that she's used since. I just hated making them because they are so tedious!
That is until I found this tutorial. And there are a bunch more out there that are quick too. I'll have to check those out too. These flower clips take about 90 seconds start to finish! I stacked layers of felt and cut several petals out at a time which made it nice and quick. String them together, a couple of hand stitches and they are ready to glue onto a clip. I've decided that little elastic bands aren't the devil and have put some on Ruby. She looks so sweet and since they are subtle and the bows and flowers are tiny it doesn't distract from her face. Now that I have 2 little girls it will be fun to make several of each color so that there are plenty to go around.
