The bow she copied is on page 59 of the TOTT Hair Bow Instructions. Macy is the contributor and she made it for her brother’s high school football games. I think this is the cutest spirit hair bow to make, and she did an amazing job!!!
I have a few nieces in high school that love going to games. I want to
spend long hours making whip one up for them! But in purple, for their colors, of course!
I attempted to make something, but I just didn’t have enough different kinds of coordinating ribbon to do the bow justice, so I just did a few of the stacks.
I started out with Two Color Twisted Boutique bow. I used Solid Grosgrain Dark Orchid and Celadon at 1 1/2″.
I did three Spikes using the Dark Orchid/White Swiss Dot Ribbon at 5/8″. I learned that I need to make my Spikes much longer!
I love the Surround-A-Bow look so I had to try it! I used Celadon/White Swiss Dot Ribbon in 3/8″.
I made the Twisted Boutique bow with Regular Stripe Ribbon in Purple at 7/8″. The color is a little off, but looks much better in person than in the picture. I’ve found the striped ribbon was a little more difficult to use for me, so I might steer clear of it until I am a little more skilled.
I used two ribbons to do my knot for the middle. I thought I would stay in the two color theme of the bow. I used Solid Grosgrain Ribbon in Dark Orchid in 3/8″ and Swiss Dot Ribbon in Celadon/White at 3/8″.
Look at the height on this bow! Pretty awesome, huh?
Thanks to Macy for getting me to try some new bows! I am seriously going to do the same bow that she did once I get my ribbon for Spirit Bows!
If you have a favorite bow or style, please let me know! Suggestions are always welcome!
