grosgrain hairbow?

Posted by chery2 (My Page) on

Saw an adorable wide-grain black w/ big white polka dots grosgrain hairbow in a pricey children's shop. I BOUGHT a black velvet jumper for my almost-3 granddaughter b/c it was 70% off, but the bow was too much. I've found the wide black ribbon, and I can probably make the white polkadots with a pencil eraser or something, but I need a pattern. Tried a couple of websites, no help. Anyone? Thanks in advance -- chery2

Hope this helps you. Their instructions say glue the bow to the barrette, I have also seen them wired.

Here is another site, no photos, driections only.

My step-sister makes bows. I think she uses E6000 to glue them. She also uses wire.

To makw the bows curly, you wrap them around something like a dowel stick and heat them in the oven. The link below is a thread I found at another website on how to make hairbows. If you like the curly bows, look up 'corkers'.

Thanks Honeysuckleridge, the first one didn't work for me, but I loved the 2nd one--such nice step by step directions with pictures. And how fun that there is actually a forum for making hair bows! I bookmarked the site so I can gather some ribbons to give it a try, would be perfect for my little GD. Luvs

I have a 9 month old granddaughter and she has little hair. I found this velcro bow which was adorable but cannot find it in any store where I live. Any ideas where I can find it online?

RE: grosgrain hairbow?

zshopper, you can glue a small piece of velcro to any bow and make your own. You could use a glue gun or FabricTac.
If you do that then you could make any bow you bought easy to use in her hair.

I have even used that rubbery shelf liner and glued it on the barrettes. It really holds fine hair.

RE: grosgrain hairbow?

If the clip is lined with velvet ribbon the hair clip will not slip from fine hair.

Magnetic bows work really well for fine hair. I can easily add them to any clip or bow. You add it to top and bottom and cover them with ribbon. Visit my site www.briannesing.com.
