I don't buy very many hair things for my girls. Why? Well, there are plenty of fun (and easy to make) ideas on Pinterest, so why spend the money, amiright? If I find something cute while I'm out shopping I usually snap a pic so that I can try to make it myself. Sometimes I can whip it up in a couple of hours, sometimes not. It all depends on the complexity of the design/ assembly and, of course how long my girls are down for a snooze. ;)
This darling little bow caught my eye. Simple, yet delightfully cute. I decided to make a few and attach a hair clip to the back.
I found this free template from the Kiki & Company blog. She has a step by step guide for making the tiny bows.
No sewing necessary. All you need is colored felt, a glue gun, scissors, and alligator hair clips. Hobby Lobby sells alligator clips in bulk packages.
I have my felt pieces cut out and ready to glue.

I made a couple bows to match with the girls outfits. The alligator clips were slipped under the bow tie band and glued in place.

The bows turned out great as hair accessories! They are adorable on piggy tails.
