Nothing says feminine and girly like Lace! Nothing! Have you seen how trendy it is right now?
With the awesome Flora Lace The Ribbon Retreat now carries, I made these cute little pig tail bows for my baby girl.
I used Pink, Brown, and Off White Lace for these bows. There are so many fun colors to choose from though! Such a fun, yet tough descision!
Good things about lace: 1) It’s inexpensive, 2) You can use it for sewing and crafting, 3) It makes really cute bows, and 4) lace can make anything pretty!
First cut 6 pieces of lace to 3 1/2″. I did two each of 3 different colors.
Line the strips of lace in a (vertical) row. Shown above.
Start at the bottom of the row and crimp the lace together at the center.
Take a needle and thread through the center.
Wrap the thread around the center several times. Take a couple of stitches through the back and tie the thread in a knot.
Tie a piece of lace (about 3″ long) in a knot.
Put a dab of hot glue in the center of the front of your bow.
Place the knot over the glue.
Wrap the ends of the lace around, glue to secure and cut the excess lace.
Glue to a single prong clip and you are done!
Such a fast bow! I love cute things like this that whip up so easy! At .60 cents a yard I think we should make these in every color!
Update: I got the pictures back, so now you can see how they look on. Have I mentioned I LOVE lace? Especially this Flora Lace!
