Making the Perfect Bow: Tutorial

Every outfit needs a matching bow...right?? Yes! absolutely! Well, that is what my four year old daughter firmly believes. 
Last week I posted about their dresses they wore for Easter. However I really wanted them to have a matching barrette and since I made the dresses if I wanted a matching bow I was going to have to make one myself. And so this is what I came up with. It is super easy and really cute! Little L loved the one I made for her on Easter so much she asked me to make her a lot more of them. 
Below is a tutorial on how I made them. I hope this is helpful to every mom, grandma, aunt etc...that can never find that special perfect hair piece to go with that special outfit!

* Pretty Fabric
*Barrette's (found mine at Joann's)

Tools Used:
*Measuring tape
*Sewing Machine
*Hot Glue Gun

Step 1: get your barrette and hot glue gun ready
Step 2: hot glue the barrette to the center of the larger fabric piece
Step 3: Place fabric band under larger fabric piece and fold up one end. Hot glue in place
Step 4: Fold other side of fabric band and hot glue in place.
Tip: make sure barrette is open before securing band. (I found these barrette's in the jewelery section of Joann Fabric's, pretty much any barrette will work.)
