Bows & Headbands

While on vacation in Utah my awesome Sis-in-Law, Andrea, taught me how to make these beautiful bows. With a house full of girls, this skill will surely come in handy. So in honor of the 4th of July, I had to make a set of patriotic ones. It's a red sparkly pom-pom for the center... who wouldn't want to wear a firework in their hair? My favorite was the hot pink with the white center. Now I just have to find the outfits to go with them :)

And since my glue-gun was already out... I decided to finish up some headbands I'd started in January. I'd been experimenting with some ribbon embroidery, which I fell in love with when I was in high school. I'm still looking to find a lot of uses for it... ribbon & embroidery... it doesn't get much more fun than that.

Then of course the flower headband is always soooo cute. Of course, when you have such a cute model, anything looks good! Can anyone out there tell me if you're ever too old to wear a flower in your hair, because I'm in love with this one :)

What an adorable baby!

The bows are pretty. My little girl never had much hair when she was little, but now that she's three I need to make some hair do-dads for her.
