Bows, bows, bows...

I've always had trouble making my bows even and symmetrical. No matter what I did, they would always be wonky and lopsided. Not any more!!!

Dani, from Live Creatively Now, linked up some cute, little floral hair spirals, to our Hair Accessories Link Party the other day. Dani's blog is full of ideas and tutorials for making hair accessories. One tutorial which especially caught my eye, was how to make Perfect Bows Every Time. This was exactly what I needed.

Look at my bows now!!! Symmetrical and definitely not wonky!!! You'll see bows on everything I make from now on.

With success coming so easily, I decided to try a bow with more loops. I forgot to count how many loops I did on each side, so it actually isn't symmetrical, but still not bad for my first attempt.

These little bows are going to be put onto an outfit I'm making at the moment. I'll show you as soon as it's done.

If you are into making hair accessories, head on over to Live Creatively Now and check out Dani's super secret tutorial on making perfect bows.

Have you made any hair accessories? I'd love to see them!!! I'm looking for new hair accessories to make. If I use your ideas, I'll definitely show you and our readers. Link up as many accessories as you'd like to our Hair Accessories Link Party.
