My Latest Obsession - Fabric Bows

If I'm not at work or spending time with my family, you will find me in my craft nook working on my latest creations. I will either be making dresses for myself or Charlotte, embroidering shirts, or my latest obsession; making fabric hair bows (you can check them out in my Etsy shop)!

One night I was looking at all the piles and piles of extra fabric that I have from various embroidery/applique projects and decided I needed to put it to use. If I were my mom, I would get creative and come up with an awesome quilt design, but quilting isn't my thing (at least not yet anyway). Then it came to me...bows! In the past I made ribbon bows, but every time I got a new idea for one I would have to go out and buy $5 worth of ribbon. However, the fabric bows required no trips to the store because I had tons of leftover fabric to experiment with.

And that is exactly what I did. I had an example of a fabric bow I had bought a while back, so after some careful studying and lots of trial and error, I had it mastered!

Then I couldn't stop. Any scrap fabric I had that was big enough, quickly turned into a bow.

What I like most about these is that they aren't just for girls. You can adhere them to shirts and onsies and just like that, you have a bowtie!

Fabric bows are my new favorite item to make, so if you are looking for a custom bow, let me know! I think my next project will be to add a monogram to them for that perfect personal touch!
