Hair Bow How-To Giveaway!

By

Just like her mama, my Stella girl loves to accessorize!  She even pats her head and says “BOW”! I love to create bows for her and you can make them for your little fashionista too! Check out how I make her “bigger than Texas” bows! It really is fun and easy! If you have questions, just leave a comment below. Happy Craftin’!

It happened again…we couldn’t choose just one so we chose 3!!! Thanks for sharing y’all.

“Great idea… I am teaching my youngest daughter to sew, as her mom doesn’t know how. We will be doing a quilt or 2 together. Keep up the good work, very informing. Also showing her the cooking aspect , because after work I also do the cooking in the house.”
Ron G.

“My mom and grandma always made (knitted or crocheted) baby blankets for new babies in the family. When my best friend announced she was pregnant, I asked and she said no one in her family made things like that…I really felt like it was important for every new baby have a handmade blanket from someone who loves them even before they are here, so I asked my mom to teach me to crochet. A tradition was born! I have hand made a crocheted baby blanket for every new baby of each of my friends since that first one for sweet baby Iris. I love spending the time making the blanket dreaming about the little person who will cuddle up in it and how they will grow, who they will become.”
Teresa N.

“I do a lot of cross stitching. Last year I made different sets of ornaments for my husbands family members, my family members and some friends. It was a lot of work and took me almost 9 months to gets done. It was worth seeing those who appreciated the work open the gifts. I am doing another cross stitch gift for almost everyone again this year, but not on that large of a scale.”

    I love these! I wish my daughter was a little younger so I could MAKE her wear them, unfortunately at 6 she has a lot of her own ideas! :)

    I love knitting scarves for everyone in my family. I try to color coordinate to their winter coats and whenever they get a new one, they know they are getting a new scarf. So fun and relaxing!

    So so cute. My cousin and sister make these types of hairbows. I love to crochet. I have made everything from blankets to scarves, to pot holders, to baby clothes. My most recent project was a baby afghan for a close friend of the family who fixing to deploy to Germany with her new baby. I beleove every baby should have ahand made afghan to cuddle under especially in colder parts of the world! I don’t like to follow patterns i usually make up my own patterns. It is more fun that way. I have made several purses and back backs for my kids and other family members. I am considering selling some of the creations I have done but right now I enjoy giving them to people I care about.

    Cute!
    I sew lots of clothes for my little girl, I make her headbands, and I have sewn all of her bedding sets (we change them each season for fun)..I now have to learn to sew clothes for our new addition of a little boy. So far I have sewn covers for all of our daughters things so he can now use them..swing, car seat, bouncy seat. I have also made him a play mat and a mobile.
    We love crafting over here :)

    I am a mother of two daughters and have a little boy on the way, but I love to make hair bows! We have a bow that matches every outfit and never leave the house without one. I actually take clothes into Hobby Lobby to find ribbons that match perfectly. They are fun to make!!!

    Cute bows! I’m very crafty too–in my head! My projects (bows, frames, scrapbooks, etc) are super cute there in my mind’s eye. Occassionally they turn out, but most of the time not so much. Still fun to do–especially with my kids!

    I have a three year old daughter and love making bows for her as well. I am going to try a crazy top bow this weekend because I know she will love it! I also like to sew and have attempted several times to make dresses, but with no luck. I think I will be treating myself to a sewing class this fall.

It makes me think you guys have more hours in your day than I do!! lol When I have time I like to scrapbook, make cards (especially Christmas cards) and I have dabbled in making my 10 month little girl flower hair accessaries made out of fabric. I really wish I could sew, knit and crochet! I would LOVE to win your cookbook! Thanks for the chance =)

    I loved the tutorial for the hair bow. I do all sorts of crafts – some better than others. My favorite (for the moment) is scrapbooking. I have four grown kids who have been kind enough to make me Gramama to 9 kids and another on the way. I’ve been following the Crockin Girls from the beginning and especially love cooking with my slow cookers.

    Oh goodness, I posted on the pervious page as well, but just now had time to watch the video and noticed that this is actually where we are supposed to submit our comment. Sorry for the double post…I just want to post in the correct section! :-) In November each year, my kids and I like to get together with my mom, who is an excellent card maker, and create (decorate and piece together) original Christmas cards for our friends and family. We listen to Christmas music, have seasonal snacks, and make warm memories.

    I woud love to be able to sew. I learned how years ago but didn’t have much patience for it. I would love to be able to make cute kids clothes and do monograming.

    I make all sorts of crafts. However, I am most proud of my upcycled crafts, making the environment a little cleaner and more interesting! I make bowls and coasters out of old records, Scrabble tile jewelry, and take tons of used chip, cookie, coffee, and other wrappers, clean them, cut them, and weave them into pocket books and wristlets. Love them and they are all unique!

    Love the hair bow ideas! Will have to tel my daughter about them.

    I will be starting to craft “Americana” decorations for the home after I graduate with my Psychology Bachelors in September (2012). Some of my children and grand children will be helping.

    Hoping to win this book for my daughter as she has her hands full with 3 children and in sports.

    Thank you, for all the great recipes, and the kind words with all of us in helping to make each and everyone of our lives better in preparing meals.

    Thank you!!

    Those are some cute bows, too bad I don’t have any girls! One craft that I have been wanting to do for my little guy’s tractor themed bedroom, is taking a bunch of tractor cards from his great-grandmother and making a framed collage to hang on the wall. That way she will always be with him :)

    Bridgette,
    You can yield up to 9 bows with 5 yards of ribbon. It really depends on how big your bows are. In Texas, you can probably find bows using all 5 yards…lol.

    I love to sew clothes for my two grandchildren, and crochet for them as well. It is amazing to see them in the things that I have made for them as well as watch them grow. I can also use my imagination when making clothes to suit their personalities!
