I’ve been crafty again and having fun with it!  Am I the only one who is crafty in spurts?  For about two weeks I didn’t do anything – mainly because I was in shock over finding out I’m carrying a boy I think.  LOL

Finally, Saturday I was inspired by a fellow blogger, Michelle of Land of the Misfit Toyz, who used a glue gun to make these fabulous fabric bows:

A glue gun!  I love her ingenuity.  And I LOVE simple yet rewarding projects like this.  Michelle’s step by step tutorial can be found here.

So here’s what I came up with for my first attempt:

I need to practice the technique to improve it, but I love it!  And it was a great way to use those resins, too.  :)

Next, it was time to make a hairbow holder.  I was fed up with all of our bows and clippies being scattered in various places in the house and so started looking around for inspiration.  I found numerous tutorials and types of holders and finally decided to combine a few of them:

Ta-Da!  I found a canvas, covered it with a favorite fabric I had lying around and used my trusty glue gun to secure the fabric on the back of the canvas, then secured random ribbons to the back with the glue gun as well.  It took me like 5 minutes.  I do want to get a staple gun and go over it all to make sure it stays a long time, but for now it works great.  :)

It’s so satisfying to create something useful!

  • I love the fabric flowers! So pretty! And the canvas bow holder I am going to have to try to make because I ran out of space on the bow holder I currently have for my daughter! lol

  • first of all no you are not the only one who is crafty in spurts. In fact I have 3 women friends who I get together with at least once a month for dinner/coffee/trip to the dog park…girl time. We are all crafty in bursts and have joked about needing to get on the same cycle, so we can have a good old fashioned stitch n’ bitch.
    I’ve been doing a project similar to the hair bows using felt. I cut out a flower shape, then a smaller oneto overlap with a different color and sew them together using buttons, beads, ribbons etc. They can then be fastened to barrettes, sewn onto jackets,hats, purses, etc. My granddaughters love them and it’s a nice little easy to do inexpensive project. I’ll have to get some pics of and post them.
    Yours are VERY cute, I’m sure there’s some kind of baby boy project you can come up with. learn to embroider sports logos and race cars/ lol
    Take care,

  • Seriously? I just tried to leave a comment that said “cute!” and it rejected it and said my comment was too short. WHA? HERE IS A LONG COMMENT FOR YOU… well not as long as Jenny’s but still. :) LOL

  • I love the bows. I think your first attempt was a great looking bow. Especially on that cute little girl.
