Flower Loop Dora Elastic Headband

I am already enjoying this newly found craft. Ribbons and bows are really addicting, especially when you'll see your finished product and have it worn by your most precious model. The feeling is just amazing!

So without further ado, I'm showing to you my second ribbon hair bow creation, a flower loop hair bow elastic headband. I prefer headbands for my little girl that is why my the first two projects are of course headbands! grin!

I wanted to make a tutorial as well for this post, but unfortunately I wasn't able to photograph some of the steps. (I can't do the sewing, and photo taking at the same assistant that time huh!)

To make the flower loop hair bow of 2.5" bow size we'll need four (4) pre-cut 3/8" grosgrain ribbon 7 inches in length and another 4 with 6 inches length.

You can always experiment with color combinations, mine, I chose plain hot pink, plain white, polka dot brown and Dora printed grosgrain ribbons. Just follow the rest of the instructions here. The same video tutorial I watched.

After making the figure 8 fold and sewing it together, I attached it to a fold over elastic and it's done! 

Ready for the awaiting model...


Baby Jewel with my 2nd ribbon hair bow created personally with love and patience just for her. :-)

  3. It looks like it's very easy to do! An ordinary ribbon can be transformed into a cute hair bow with the right creativity! I hope Jewel is doing fine!
