We have a local brand called Wee Ones that cost a FORTUNE for hair bows. Actually, they're probably typical of boutique prices, but a fortune for us - with three (sometimes four) girls in the house!

I HAVE to figure out how to make them. ESPECIALLY ones that match DD's new Kindergarten uniform. <sigh> yes - I'm a homeschool drop out.

Anyway - I requested some titles from the library with step-by-steps, but I'm ANNNNXIOUS!!

Anyone know where I can find step-by-steps with pictures, preferably?

Thanks!

(bubble bows, regular bows, and especially those GORGEOUS scrappy pinking-sheared scrunchies - we just ordered one from the uniform company that was SIX DOLLARS )

If you have pics of these finished, I could probably write up instructions for them. I've done a lot of jewelry and accessory making in my day

OMGoodness, all of those are so easy to do. I'll have to put together a web page with pics of how to make them.

As far as the marabou. I'll bet you a dollar it sheds. My DD has a couple of boas for dress up, and although they're "finished" they both shed. I'll LYK when I get the page up, but it should be sometime this weekend.
