Hair Bow

I really enjoyed making this bow for my daughters hair and I finally got the chance to share this after she has already worn this in 20 shows. The wardrobe assistant asked me to sew this onto a comb as it was the perfect green to match one of her costumes. I thought I could just see myself making a mess of that, so I bought a glue gun and used lashings of glue along the top edge of a hair comb and the pre tied bow stuck like a dream to the hair comb. The glue line is completely concealed once in her hair. There is nothing like having to do something that pushes you outside your normal boundaries and I now feel I could certainly expand on this idea,time permitting! The best part about the bow is my daughter loves it, and she can put it in her hair on her own.
I’m entering this bow in a challenge at Reasonable Ribbon http://reasonableribbon.blogspot.com/2011/08/challenge-29-sizzlin-summer-theme.htmlAugust 1st 2011 Bow 017
