This pattern can be tweaked in many ways! Just adding another round can give the bow a different look. Like this…
I use this bow to make hair clips. To do this, first glue ribbon onto alligator clip, then glue onto the back of the bow using fabric glue.
You can also clip the bow onto a hat
This is a fun and easy pattern to try. It’s a great way to use up some of your yarn stash. You can also try other types of yarn if you’d like but they may be a little more floppy. Don’t hesitate to email if you have any questions
