And so, of course, the three of us are clad in Maize and Blue this morning. Avery has been asking all week if it was time to wear her Mich-gan dress, as in her tiny cheerleading outfit. Before she could, though, she needed hairbows to match it (to me this is obvious, but I realize I'm a bit more obsessive about the hairbow thing than most). This is what I came up with:
The tutorial for making these bows is here.
Not great, but not too bad either, though I don't think I'm ready for an Etsy shop just yet.
The major problem I had was a lack of proper supplies. The glue I used dried too hard, and the wires I had were either too heavy or too light. The other issue was making two to accomodate pigtails. Since they had to match it took much longer than just making two separate bows would have. Still, I think they'll work for twelve Saturdays.
And since I know you're dying to see the complete ennsemble, here''s my little cheerleader, complete with her "ham hams" (that's pom-pons, for those that don''t speak toddler).
Enjoy the games, Go TOPS! and GO BLUE!!!
