{felt bow and flower headbands}

Hair accessories are a way of life around here. Having twin girls turned this sporty tomboy into a {more-girly-than-she-thought-she-could-ever-be} mom that now requires some kind of bow in their hair every day. The result is that I'm always on the lookout for darling ideas (for me too!).

Today I want to share a couple of my very favorites--oldies, but goodies. They made the top of the list because they are simple and quick to make, easy on the pocketbook, and SO adorable!

This first one has been around simply forever--just a basic flower made out of wool felt. I've also made them out of knit jersey, and it's a totally different look that I love too. Pin them on a cardi, tee, bag or purse, coat, or add them to a headband...they are just so versatile and can dress up any outfit!

I recently ran across the cutest felt bow headbands, and fell in love with them as soon as I saw them. I knew I wanted to replicate them as soon as possible in mass quantity, and in every color I could get my hands on.  I love the way they turned out, and they have quickly become a go-to accessory for not only my girls but for me too!

I also added a pin to the bottom, making it the perfect compliment to a favorite tee or cardi...

The best part?  They literally take less than 5 minutes to make!  I used wool felt, which I think makes for the best outcome. It comes in different percentages of wool--from 20% up to 100%.  The 100% wool felt is quite expensive--around $18 a yard.  I used a 20% wool felt--which was about $8 a yard.  With a 40% off coupon, it made it much more reasonable--only $2 for a quarter yard, which made at least 5 felt bows.

Do you love the stretch lace I used? I'm going to share my secret! I order it online from Deb's Lace and Trims--they have a huge selection at very reasonable prices.  For example--all three shown were $3 or less for 5 yards!  They have so many to choose from, in different styles, colors, and widths.

 I used a white ruffle, this fabulous crocheted cream, and a basic black.
