Hair Bow Making - A Southern Tradition

You've probably seen pictures of Sara Lynn and you may have noticed that she always has a bow in her hair. Not only do they look nice, but they're super easy to use for keeping her hair out of her face. These use alligator clips (salon style clips you can purchase in your local beauty supply store) and take only a few minutes to make. Really simple. Really easy to make. The pinwheel style bows are my favorite (pictured above). I whipped these up in about half an hour this evening to match a few new outfits in Sara Lynn's closet.

Tutorial here. On this site there are 30+ tutorials for making different styles of hair bows and clips. Some are very elaborate - turkey motifs for Thanksgiving, pumpkin clippies for Halloween, and Minnie Mouse ears to name a few. If you're into girly hair things, this is the place for you.

Seeing those bows remind me of the big puffy ones I wore in elementary school. Remember when those were the coolest things ever? So much fun! :)
