More Custom Bows!

The bow from the previous post was a custom order by a mom who works at Grant's school. After I dropped it off, I received a call from one of the office ladies requesting the exact same bow! And now this week I had requests for 5 more bows! So here they are to share. Let me know what you think!

For this bow order, the mom wanted a pair of smaller Christmas bows. I think they turned out pretty cute!

I made Kate a Christmas bow similar to the bows above and below but quite a bit smaller than the one below. The lady who ordered this one said that she wanted one just like Kate's but bigger. So I made it big! This is probably the biggest bow I have made and I will say it was tricky...but so fun! I love how it turned out by adding tulle, ruffle ribbon, and a sequin strip of ribbon.

This bow is my favorite bow! After making this bow, I want to make Kate a leopard outfit just so I can make another bow like this one! The picture hardly does justice.
This bow is made of a small ruffle ribbon bow on top with the leopard bow on bottom. In between is red tulle, a leopard spike, and sheer red and black ribbon.

I had fun making this bow for a 9 month old little girl. Her grandmother is one of the office ladies at Grant's school and she wanted a bow to match the onesie that says "Shh...I'm hunting Santa!" Isn't it adorable?
I haven't put red with pink camo before but I needed red in the bow since it is a Christmas onesie and the lettering is in red. I love how it turned out!

Made to Match - Custom Bow

I made this bow to match the pants in the picture below. I used two bows with spikes, korkers, ruffle ribbon, and tulle in between. Turned out pretty cute, huh? :-)

Fancy Pants

I have always wanted to make pants like these for Kate. And just a couple of weeks ago, I finally did it! Of course, I had to make a bow to match. I used gathered fabric for the ruffles and two coordinating layered ribbons for the shirt. I am really happy how it all turned out. Usually it takes a few times of doing something for me to get it right but these turned out great on the first try. Yay! Kate loves wearing her "fancy" pants and it's so fun for me as her mom to have a girly girl. 8-)

not the best picture but you can see a little bit of how cute the outfit turned out!

I love making these for baby girl showers. They are super cute and original and they always go over great at the shower.
My friend Sara came over and we put this one together for her friend's baby shower. Sara finished it off with personalizing the container and then wrapped it:
So cute!

My 1st Bowquet for sweet baby Emmerson

This one was for my newest neice, Abigail Elise! Somehow the picture didn't turn out so great.

Go Gators!

These cute korker bows match Grant's school mascot.
