One of the gifts I made for Alex this Christmas was a cute head bow. I didn't have access to a sewing machine over winter break so I made it by hand, it was really difficult! I made it in a medium size, it's hard to tell in the pictures but it's bigger than an Alice bow but smaller than a massive brand head eating bow, I wanted to make something that Alex could wear often.
I chose to make the bow in pink to match the other gift I bought her (a Minty Mix lavender wig that fades to pink at the bottom), I thought that pink at the top and pink at the bottom would look really good. I didn't just want to give her a regular old bow though, I wanted it to be special, so I embellished it with some cute gold charms.
The heart shaped charm at the bottom is my favorite, it's actually quite heavy! I really like the engraved pattern that is on both sides.
I also added two little gold ribbon charms to the bottom of each side. In this picture you can also see the glittery gold hair band that I placed it on.
It was really fun to make something for a friend, I really hope that she ended up liking the present! I think in the future I will make more gifts for my friends special moments.
