Christmas is over and the recovery is on! I have a little set of bows to share with you today that I created for my little girl as part of her Christmas present. Her big dream for this request was an American Girl Doll. It was a first for her! She loves to do hair, so I wanted to make her some little bows to use in her new doll's hair that were just the right size!
This lucky little doll has her own, one of a kind bows! Today I am going to share with you how I created these bows. And don't worry, they are quick and easy...especially with the right tools in hand!
I created several different little bows. The key to making this work easily is to use ribbon that is less than 1/2" wide.
I purchased some smaller clips that are about 1 1/2 inches long. Perfect for a very little girl or a doll! --To start you will want to cut a 4 inch strip of ribbon.
-Cover the top of the clip with fabric glue or hot glue (something that dries fast).
-Then begin at one end and tack it down and create a loop until you get to the other side.
-Add glue to the center and smash down the middle with your finger.
-Cut down the excess and use that to create the middle of your bow
-Add a dab of glue tot he center and wrap the piece around the center, securing it with glue to the bottom of the clip.
-Trim off excess.
-After allowing it to dry overnight, it should be ready for doll hair!
Now what colors should I make next?
