Yo-Yo hair bows

I'm a bad blogger. I did not get my blog writing done this weekend, so today I'm putting up a short and sweet little post about some cute yo-yo hair bows I made back in July.  These are totally easy and quick to put together.  All you need is a little bit of fabric, a few buttons and some sort of hair clip.  My clips came from Jo-Ann Fabrics in the jewelry and beading section, I think I got a little baggie of 25 clips or so.  Oh and you'll also need some thread, and the knowledge of how to make a yo-yo. (Trust me - you CAN do this.  Also, I rarely turn under the edge of my yo-yo's since I usually cover the center with a button.  It's not that pretty, but it works!

I made this first one to wear in my hair on the 4th of July this year.  I know, I can't believe I wore this in my hair all day.  I still think it's cute though.  Anyways, it's two yo-yo's stacked on top of each other, and two stacked buttons on top of that.  I think I sewed them all together in one fell swoop.  Then I sewed it to the hair clip.

 I made these two to match the sweet little dresses I made a while back.  Totally cute, and much more age appropriate than my patriotic clip was, since they were going to little girls...  I actually think I hot glued the yo-yo's to the hair clip on the one on the right.  The one on the left is made exactly the same way as the patriotic one.

So there you have it.  A quick and easy way to make hair accessories to match any outfit, so long as you can find the right color fabric and buttons that is.  See you later this week when hopefully I'll have dedicated some more time to writing!  Peace!

These are adorable! I've seen quite a few that I like and someday I really am going to make myself sit down and learn how to do them. Since I don't live near you at a convieniant run-over-and-demand-a-lesson-distance. :)
