Ballerina Hair Bows & Ribbon Sculpture
I wanted to share my ballerina hair bows. Sofie is taking a Mommy & Me ballet class so I tried my hand at ribbon sculpture. (The ballet slippers in the center.)
I’ve seen better ribbon sculptures, but I thought mine turned out pretty decent. People could tell they were supposed to be slippers, so I’m counting this one as a win:)
I thought I’d make a few to put in my Etsy shop, but every bow I make belongs to Sofie. Ask her!
It’s so hard for me to make things for people I don’t know. Am I the only one who struggles with this? I like gifting little things I make to my daughter, niece, and nephews.
Also, how does one ship a hair bow? I wouldn’t want it to get squished. I’m not sure I could charge what I spend making them. Maybe you have to buy wholesale to have a bow business. I doubt I’ll ever mess with that! This is why my shop will probably always just have destash sewing items. I talk myself out of selling things!
Here’s the real reason for this post: I wanted to show you my favorite ballerina ever! Leg-warmers, eek!
I made her bow on a barrette, so it doesn’t wobble on her head at all. I’m hoping that her studio understands that we care more about cute little weensy ballerina clothes than we do actual ballet. Because if the bow is a no, I’m pretty sure it’s a deal breaker. Ha!
Did anyone notice I put her bow on upside down?
Here’s my back up ballerina hair bow. Just in case!
Do you have a shop? Etsy selling tips are welcome. One day I’ll put some clothes or bows in there. Probably doll clothes! I keep putting it off and I don’t know why!
