Another Big Bow Headband

***Before I get to telling you all about how my love of big bows on babies keeps growing, hope on over to Designs by Sessa where I guest posted as a part of her Front Porch series… sharing a bit of what’s been on my heart lately and what I’m learning about being content.***

I’m just slightly obsessed with big bows on my baby. I really would have thought I’d be a huge flower mommy, but these bows have captured my heart. It started with the soft and comfy big bow headbands. And then I saw THIS headband on Etsy and knew it was exactly what I wanted to make to go with Reese’s Easter dress. And I am in love… mostly with the baby, but definitely with the big bow on her head too.
***The shop that inspired this headband no longer has them in stock, so you can now find them in my shop HERE.

I followed THIS tutorial from eighteen25 for making the bow, just made it bigger. I think my first piece (the one that’s the actual bow) was 10x2” and then I just cut the other pieces proportionately. Glued it together and it was done! I bought the elastic lace for the headband HERE. I love how easy it was to make and need to make more colors since this baby has a bit of a big head and has outgrown her other accessories.

Oh how I love to look at this baby.

And just for kicks, one of my favorite pictures from Easter. It’s like she’s saying, “What? I wasn’t supposed to dig into my Easter basket yet?”

Thanks for stopping by! I just need to take a few more pictures and I’ll be back to share my painted tile backsplash, cupboards and new wall color in the kitchen!

  4. Um I'm in love with this bow (just like your comfy ones) and ok the baby girl too! I really should make some but with my crochet business I don't have a lot of extra time with two kiddos... now both mobile...

    If you are interested in making any to sell this one and/or the comfy ones please let me know the details because I'm interested ;) I know your shop is closed for now so I understand if you are not.
