Funky Loops Bows

Big Ole Hairbows - love'em.  Never made'em.  'Til now!

Pathetic - I'm a crafter AND I have a couple of girls, yet I've never attempt the Boutique-Style Hairbows - they always seemed so complicated.  The only bows I made were the ones here in my Simple Bow Tutorial.

Well, I was sent a Funky Loop Bow Tutorial Pattern from Birdsong Bows and so I thought I'd give it a go.  Let me tell you, as a newbie to bow making - it was so much easier than I thought!  The instructions were very detailed with lots of pictures, etc.  Who knew this was so easy to create!

 Here's the "hold your head here but make your eyes look at me pose" - it's a tricky one:
 This week Michael's is having a sale on a bunch of their ribbon - plus in the flyer there's a coupon for an additional 15% off sale prices for ribbon - score! So go grab some ribbon, enter the Birdsong Bows Giveaway that ends tomorrow, and if you can't wait to see if you win, you can find lots of pattern choices in the Birdsong Etsy Shop.

Here's the last picture, seeing as she got distracted by a worm....

SO cute! And I love a kid who will get distracted by a worm! That's my kind of girl. :-)

way to cute! im you newest follower!

Lol! I used to HATE HATE HATE big hair bows! Then, I started crafting, and the bows I made got bigger and bigger and bigger! And now I am just eating my words because I LOVE big bows and everytime I put one on my teeny tiny little Sophie, I chuckle to myself and wonder what the old me would have to say about it! Anyway, yours came out adorable! I absolutely love them, and I would love for you to come link up to my Sew Crafty Party !
