So yesterday, I posted HERE about my fail with cutting the stretch wrong on some fabric. I didn’t want to throw it away and waste it so I came up with another fun idea of what do to with it, make bow ties!
So far for my baby shower gifts that I am trying to put together in advanced, I have made Burp cloths (tutorial#1 & tutorial#2), Baby Girl Headbands with Bows (Tutorial), Bow pinsÂ (Tutorial), and now for the boy baskets, I wanted to make some cute little boy hats or beanies. Below is my tutorial.
I am always trying to find good things to add to my baby shower gifts. There are a lot of different baby things you can make,but some people don’t use, they take way too much time to be worth it, or they are to expensive where you might as well have just bought something. I enjoy making the burp cloths, but just giving three burp cloths doesn’t seem like a good enough baby shower gift. So, I found a super simple way of making cute headbands for girl gifts at least. They are VERY affordable and have two different ways you can make them either with a sewing machine or a hot glue gun. I would say they are also super easy to make and do take a little bit of time. It took me around an hours or two to make 65 headbands.
A while back, I made a ton of burp cloths for the various baby showers that I attended. The tutorial can be found here. I finally have run out, so, it was time to replenish my stock. I learned a few things to make the whole process go faster. It is sad that it took me so long, but sometimes I like repetitious work over the problems solving work. Below you can see what differences that I figured out to speed out the process.
This year for Christmas, I was to give a few different ladies to girls gifts but really didn’t have the budget for it. I wanted something cute, functional,and didn’t break the bank. So, I decided on hair Knotties. They can be worn as a bracelet or used as a hair tie, and they are very “trendy” right now. You can buy them at places like Anthropologie for around $15 a set or on Etsy around $6-12 a set depending on which kind you want or which seller you choose.
