Make-Over Monday+T-Shirt bows

It has been awhile since I posted a Make-Over Monday.  So I thought why not!   If you do not know by now; I LOVE making things out of t-shirts!  I had some left over scrapes and got busy making cute hair bows!  We are always needing some fun new hair accessories around here!

So this is what I came up with.

Cut about a 11/2 inch strip of t-shirt material.  Fold in half.  Snip all the way across the strip of material so that you get the frayed look.  (It is fun to experiment with different widths!)  Do not snip all the way through the fold.  Stop about a 1/4 of an inch from the fold.


Cut out a circle of felt.  Hot glue the strip flat and into a circle.  Around, around and around!


When you reach the middle you can trim off the excess and glue some bling into the center!

Here are a few that I made.


I just put an alligator clip on the back, but I could see these being really cute on a thin stretchy head band!  Let me know if you make any of these!  I would LOVE to show them off here on my blog!
