A hair bow for all seasons

The other day I was looking through an old suitcase that my mom stores ribbons and buttons in, and I stumble upon a how-to booklet containing this cute/horrifying picture.

Funny story is, my mom actually made that bow for me when I was younger, but I bet the bow was not the first thing your eyes went to. (I think it’s the glasses that make her eyes looks so huge!) But weird picture aside, the book inspired me. And with some ribbon, an obsession was formed.

I can see how my Mom had so much fun making bows to match my outfits. And though I don’t think you’ll be seeing me wear a bow to class, Samford has this thing called Step Sing and I’m thinking a different bow for each day’s practice! And then, while I had the glue gun out, I made a simple barrette with buttons. It was a good craft day!
