Cute Flower Hairbows - great for the whole family!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again!  I love the craft tutorials at Polka Dot Pineapple!  Here's another of her tutorials that I just had to try - the Quick n' Easy Flower Hair Pins!  This is another craft project that I completed ages ago.  Maybe back in February?  Anyways...

This craft is exactly what it is advertised to be - quick and easy!  And it's fun too!  I know a lot of cute little girls, and cute little girls need cute little hair accessories!  I picked up some hair clips (these were ridiculously hard to find for some reason...) and some brightly colored stretchy headbands, since some little girls don't like to keep clips in their hair (Josie).

Instead of a little stack of buttons for the center, I used some covered buttons.  It is really the only kind of buttons I had at the time, but it worked out really well because I could coordinate my fabrics!  Great!

All my pieces, cut and laid out, ready to assemble!

Of course I had to make a special blue and orange headband for my little gator girlie!

I didn't take any "in process" shots other than these, but here is the finished product!
This set was given as part of a baby shower gift - I just love the pink headband!

The clips made great bows for my gift!

These headbands are great for toddlers...

moms...

and hey - there's me looking crazy!

Another great success!!  I would absolutely recommend this project - even if you don't really know how to sew.  I think anyone could do it!  Go try it out if you could use a little more cute in your life!

Nice! i made a fabric flower for my little girl, but I didn't have a good headband to put it on. Those cloth stretchable ones that you used look to work great!!
