My newest hobby

I have become fascinated with hair bows.  I luuuurve to get them and put them in my girls' hair.  Lucky for me they like hair bows too.

I bought my first ones at a craft fair last year.  The girls' loved them.  I've even looked them up on Etsy and was dangerously close to ordering some.  But I held back since I was feeling broke at the time. 

I went to the craft fair again this year.  And bought more bows. 

Then I had a brilliant idea. 

Surely I can make own bows, right?  Right.

So I've been looking all over the Internet for instructions and found some great ones here.

This afternoon I decided to try my luck at making some.  It was definitely a first-timer bow and I've got a lot of practicing to do.  I also made a fancy hair-tie with ribbons for Tracey to wear for her games but didn't get a picture of that yet. 

I learned that I need a bigger variety of ribbon (hint, hint...good Christmas idea) and more colors.  The colors I bought are Tracey's school colors and were intended to make something the girls could wear to her games. 

Tracey also made some bows and blogged about it here.

I will try and get more pictures and share them with you guys.  Hopefully we'll see some improvement *grin*.
