Advice Please!

Pin It Now!
I have been looking for bows and I am not having any luck!! Help! See the bow in Shiloh's hair? Where can I buy some that are just like that? I did find a site online, but the bows there were priced at $4 per bow. That is too expensive for my budget. The one in her hair came from Chocolate Soup, which is a store in Memphis. Their online store didn't have what I was looking for. I really wanted a brown bow for this Sunday, but I guess it is too late for that.

I went to Michael's today in hopes of finding some ribbon and what I call "alligator" clips, but they didn't carry the clips that I wanted. I was planning to attempt to make my own bow and hot glue it to the clip.

I haven't really ever been a very crafty person, so any advice would be greatly appreciated!! I need new bows to match fall clothes!!

Thanks!

You know what....you asked me about bows last week and I never responded. I make my girls' bows. You can get the clips at a beauty supply store like Sally's or something. This website is great for directions on making different kinds of bows....

I've also found some good priced ones on ebay.

If you don't want to make them, I'll make you a good deal on some! Good luck.

I make Emma's bows. You can find the clips at Handcock's or a fabric store. Sally's is good too, like Carrie said.

Some of my favorite bows are not fancy. Just some ribbon tied in a simple bow (like you tie your shoes) and glued to a clip.
