Newborn Hair bows

I love hair bows. Currently the only ones PB will wear are clippies in her bangs. I jumped at the chance to make some hair bows for a new niece!

The total I spent on these was $1. I had all the basic supplies for making the bows but I purchased these headbands at the dollar store. I have found these at two different dollar stores so I would totally suggest checking out the hair section at your local store. I made these 12 inches long unstretched for newborn size. These are made for children so I think the elastic is extra stretchy since I only cut off the knot and glued the ends together. I didn't think the knot would be very comfortable for a baby.


I went through my hair bows and was very grateful to my self for making extra bows the last time I made some for PB. I completed all 6 headbands in less than an hour so these are super easy. Here they are:

I did a round up of hair bow tutorials when PB was born that can be found here. Below I referenced which ones I used. 

I thought that little bow on the green one would be so sweet. I happened to have the perfect color button to go in the center. The directions for the flower on the yellow headband can be found here (tutorial #1)

The pink bow can be found here (#5 the pinwheel bow). The crocheted bow on the purple headband can be found here. I didn't leave a long tail for the head band or the button. 


 The flower for the blue headband I made out of felt. I cut three layers, two with four petals and one smaller one with three petals. To make it slightly curl up I only used glue in the center and pushed hard each item I glued on. The flower for the orange headband is again tutorial #1 found here.

I just love making things for babies, don't you?!
