    These are so cute, I make bows for my daughter with ribbon, fabric and flowers. I will have to try one of these with felt.

    I was so glad to run across this post today. My students are trying to add some extras to a project and they were brainstorming about making hairbows. Awesome directions. Thanks.

    I am so going to make some of these for my daughters, my 5 year old loves hair bows and hair ties. I can even have her help with them and she would be estatic

  6. Kristin Welch says

    With two girls, hair bows can get really expensive! I have tried several times (and failed) at making hair bows myself but they’re all too complicated for me! This looks very simple and I’m glad I saw this; will definitely have to try it! Thank you!

  7. Gina Hiskes says

    This looks like something I might be able to do! I have 3 girls and can barely do my own hair, I try to make up for it with cute accessories. Thank you!

  8. Renee Patterson Travis says

    I love this idea. I have 2 grand daughters I am going to have to try this for! Thanks for the instructions 🙂

  9. Nancy Loring says

    This looks like a nice rainy or in our case snowy day project. I have 2 daughters and they love all hair accessories.

  10. Deb Charte says

    I can’t believe how easy these look to make. My daughters love the animal prints and wear bows all the time.

  11. Julie S says

    Those are really cute! Gives me a couple ideas of some cute combos. I’ve made bows before but never with felt!

    My fav craft I enjoy is quilting. I’m fairly new to it but it’s so much fun!
