Big, ridiculous bows are all the rage in the 3rd grade. I’m not sure if you can tell, but this Halloween hair bow is bigger than my daughters head. In fact, I hung it on the door and it looked like a wreathe of sorts. Really, it’s just too big.
I used galvanized wire and pliers to hold this monstrous Halloween hair bow together. You’ve seen the styrofoam balls on wire on my Halloween Fascinator tutorial. The orange and black ribbon is a wired ribbon that helps this monstrocity hold it’s shape. I had to sew in the most enormous barrette known to mankind- with upholstery thread. Whatever happened to cute little pink pigtail bows?!
Here’s how these monster bows were born. My daughter came home from school and told me she wanted a big, ignorant Halloween hair bow. When I asked if she knew what ignorant means, she replied,” Its slang for when something is so huge that it just knocks stuff over, and can’t even help itself.”
Oh. Like a Kardashian butt?
Bella wanted to be a witch for Halloween. But not any witch, this exact witch. I made it. I’ll show you ASAP. It’s….ignorant. I have mixed feelings about it.
I’m anxious to show you my Sunki pattern flip too! I’ve already cut my second Sunki dress, and it’s very 80′s. My fave decade!
I’ve been sewing some cute doll clothes I made for the upcoming huge giveaway at Diana Rambles. The winner gets their choice of a Just like Me doll from American girl, and an entire wardrobe of clothes and accessories from some of the best blogs and etsy shops around. I am so jealous of whomever wins! Y’all know (according to my daughter) I play dolls all day.
Okay, I’m getting back to work. Are you guys crazy busy too? See ya soon!
