Monday, September 5


I am in the wrong business. I need to learn how to make hairbows. Being the good mother that I am when my youngest daughter says I would like some hairbows I hit ebay! I figure where else am I going to find hairbows that are made out of ruler ribbon? Oops sold out of those but boy mom those Halloween ones are super cute. I can take a hint and the bidding begins. I am willing to pay a fair amount for the bows or am I??? I bid $5.00 bucks and was the high bidder until today. These bows are up to $10.51 and don't even close for 2+ hours. I am including a picture of the bows and making a public apology to my daughters because I am not paying that much for the bows. I did however make a trip to the craft store tonight to buy ribbon. I got some really cute fall ribbon. I am going to attempt to make my girls bows myself. I will keep you posted on that progress. Oh one more thing if anyone has some really good instructions on making hairbows could you please send them my way.

Those are cute. I wish I had a creative streak for that sort of thing, but I never had.

Here via Michele to wish you a happy evening.

Hello, Michele sent me!

I would not pay that for hairbows. Ya know, ebay USED to be where you could get a good deal. Not anymore. I just go there to find stuff I can't get around here!

Really enjoyed your blog!

I'm sure you can figure out how to make some. $10 is highway robbery!

I am a florist, and I make bows all the time. Try to use wired ribbon; it is easier to handle and when the bows get mashed, you can easily fluff them up again. Maybe if you googled bow making you could get some instructions. Good luck.....Michele sent me.

They do look cute but not for over $10. They can't be that hard to make.

$10 for a hairbow? That's insane. Keep us posted on your efforts to make them - I'm sure yours will be cuter and much more cost-effective :)

I am convinced that the reason I had two boys was because I missed the crafty gene...there is no way in this world that I could ever make bows...good luck!

Hmmmmm.... I never had a reason to learn how to make them... even when my hair was long, I just wasn't a hairbow type of guy....

First, if only I could get my daughter to wear hairbows, then my world would be perfect.

Second, I'd never pay $10.51 for hairbows!!!! LOL!

i wouldn't pay that much for a bow, you can either google on line or i'd even go to a craft shop, they'll show you how to make them, they are much easier than you think. the more you make, the easier they get.

I have a large case full of hairbows for my girls! My youngest loves to pull them out and chuck them where only dust bunnys can get to!

My daughter isn't into bows. Maybe because I'm not. I admit the other girls on her soccer team have really cute bows. Any luck yet on making them on your own?
