Paisley's bows





Like I mentioned before, I wanted to try and make some of these "nylon" bows or figure out who can get me some more. I decided to try it out myself and this is what I came up with. I couldn't find any white nylons believe it or not, but I did find black and off white. The orange and black one is my favorite, I made it to match her Harley outfit that was once Beck's. The blue one is not my favorite, but matches an outfit I got from my friend Katie. The red one I stole the actual bow off of a different hair bow that was stained, sorry, Kortni, I ripped it right off..... And the peachy/yellow one I think might be too big of a flower/bow, but also I made to match a dress, that she will hopefully get to wear soon. Can anyone teach me how to make an actual bow out of ribbon? I don't do so hot on that part.....

So, I don't know why I didn't offer before but I have a TON of ribbon/bows/headbands that I will totally send to you! If we lived just a tad closer I would just teach you!
The ones you made are pretty dang cute! :)
I have every color you can think of in the ruffle ribbon (like the red one in the last pic) if you want a certain color let me know! If you want some just e-mail me your address and I will mail some to you...seriously!

I would send you to my e-bay to look at some pics, but I closed it down until after I have the babe.

The patterns werer really hard to find. I didn't think that they would be. I had to make the baby one by scratch. Glad you like them.

Your bows are cute! Making ones out of ribbon are easy. That's what I usually do for Katelyn. Go here... http://bowdesigns.50webs.com/tying_knots.html You'll love this website. I went nuts :) What I can't do is make the nylon headband out of the tights. I always screw it up. Maybe you can share with me your secret :)
