My second grader asked me to make hair bows as a Valentine goody for each girl in her class. I took on the challenge with the help of Rae Barthel's Hair Bow Tutorial. I made only one small adjustment... Since the bows were going to be handled by little fingers, I wanted to make sure they were very secure. I placed a small stitch with each step. I then used hot-glue to place the centerpieces (epoxy stickers) and barrettes.
I was able to make 12 hair bows from 8 yards of our 1 1/2" red grosgrain ribbon. Our grosgrain ribbon comes in 196 colors! It's color-safe, washable, and available in widths up to 2 1/4". Widths up to 4" are available via special order.
Have a great weekend! Stay tuned for our first reader challenge next week. We want to see what YOU can do with ribbon!
