I have had a pleasant Easter weekend. I was taking my daughter Momo out here and there, but managed to make some hair accessories for her this weekend.
I used scrap fabric to make some hair bows. I like to make matching hair accessories after making a dress or a skirt, like this one:
I made this onesie refashioned dress last week. Momo outgrew this onesie in length, but it was still in a great condition. So I cut off the bottom and attached a skirt. The fabric is tutti frutti fabric from JoAnn. It is not the kind of prints I am usually attracted to, but I thought Momo might like the ladybug print.
This little girl is truly enjoying playing with those plastic eggs, more than wearing the ladybug dress...
Those fabric tied bows are actually knock-offs of those store bought ones:
I bought those at Babies"R"U clearance, but hardly ever use them...
But the matching hair accessories come in handy. So here is how to make this simple Tie Bow Hair Accessories:
Cut 2 pieces of fabric as shown, in the desired size.
Sew them right side facing together, leave small opening in the middle.
Turn inside out from the opening. Iron and top-stitch along the edge, closing the opening.
Make a tie. Sew elastic on the back.
I also made flower clips this weekend. I wanted something little more "fancier" than those simple bows to wear with the Easter dress.
There is nothing new and original about this design, but a gerbera daisy flower is still cute and perfect for a little girl's hair clip. This blue color was just the perfect matching color to Momo's Easter dress I had bought. I like how huge this flower is on Momo's hat.
Linking up to those fun parties.
