Made it Monday: Tulle Hair Bow

"Made It"Carrie Lynn1 Comment

While getting Georgia dressed, I discovered that I didn't have any white hair bows. Seems like the white ones ALWAYS get lost. I dove into my craft disaster in search of some white felt or fabric and discovered I didn't have any... which was so odd. What I did have, however, was a bunch of white tulle.

Anyway, I thought I'd try my hand at making a hair bow out of THAT and I was pretty pleased with how it looks and how easy it was. I love when that happens- it's a rare thing over here.

I took a piece of tulle 6" wide by 15" long. Folded it in half length wise, then folded it length wise again. Then I folded it in half "hamburger style." Then, I folded it so the two ends met in the middle. I pinched it with my fingers and took a long piece of tulle (about 1" by 15") and wrapped it around the middle. Added a dab of glue on the back and threw in an alligator clip. 

I had a hard time deciding between leaving it nice and folded or cutting the ends to look fluffy.

No matter what, you can't go wrong once you put it on a cute baby.
