I have quite a bit of ribbon that I really don't have any use for.  And someday, I am going to have a baby girl.  And baby girls NEED hairbows, right?!?!?!  So I did the math (this is math I can enjoy) and decided to learn how to make hairbows.  Where do you go when you need to learn a new, of course.  And I found this site.  And I realized I hit the motherload!!!!!  And I've been in a ribbon and hot glue state of euphoria ever since.

*As I side note, I have used hot glue on and off but it has not really been a go to crafting item.  Oh, how things have changed.  Hot glue gun, I love you!!!

As I write this I have made 5 successful bows and 2 of those are a matching pair.  All but one are of the same style (as in they are made the same but with different ribbon).  There are a few things (wider ribbon is a BIG must have) I need to get to try some of the other styles but I am having fun.  This girl o' mine is gonna have awesome head gear!!!!

This one is in "honor" of my sister who is obsessed with black & hot pink....

I think this one needs some denim romper.  Lovin the bling!

Won't these make the cutest pigtails EVER!!!

This is the only ribbon wide enough to try this style of bow.  I am pleased with how it turned out but am ready to buy some other wide ribbons.

My first successful baby headband.
After the glue gun cooled and I had really run out of ideas with the ribbon I have on hand, I decided she would need headbands to clip the bows in, of course.  She could be either bald or have a big puffball of hair or anything in between but any way you slice it, headbands will be nice.  So my friend google and I did some searching and I found a couple tutorials for headbands.  I found some yarn in the craft closet and started with a crocheted one.  I like it.  But the yarn was a little heavy.
