The nursery is coming along. We spent yesterday removing all of the craft room shelving and patching any holes in the drywall. Most of my crafting supplies are currently housed in big boxes, which means quick and easy projects are my go-to. Even if you offered me a million bucks to find my paper trimmer, I don’t think I could do it! Luckily, today’s installment of ELSM requires very, very few supplies and even less know-how. If you can use a pair of scissors and a ruler, you can make these incredibly adorable bows.

  1. cute… and you are on the mark with wool felt! usually ‘sold by the yard’ at JoAnn’s but you don’t have to buy a whole yard

  2. Love this easy to make bow. I can see packaging jewelry in aqua bags or boxes with a white bow to resemble something coming from Tiffany’s. These bows could also be made into hair clips or pins. Thank you for the inspiration.

  3. The hubs just brought down my “must have” supplies and packed up the rest. Got one of those cart things, not the IKEA one but one from Michael’s with a coupon 😉 Stamps, inks & paper. Felt so good to purge! Went out a bought two new sets of baby clothes to celebrate. LOL. I wish sometimes I was having a girl to make all these cute hair bows for.

  4. Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting
    to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
    with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with
    experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  5. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much
    more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer
    to create your theme? Excellent work!

  6. These bows are adorable! I would love to sew these on the back of a racer back shirt. Do you think I would be able to use the same technique with a different fabric and if so do you have any suggestions?

  7. I bought little fabric squares from Walmart ,not felt but still look super cute! I’m starting an at home business since I’m a new mommy. BABY BOWS BOUTIQUE. And they look adorable,can’t wait to try the felt! I’m sure it will look even beter!

  8. I’m beyond new to this hair bow stuff. Where do I find the little clip thing that goes on the back of the bow? What is it called?
