I do not know about your girls but my 6 yr old and 4 yr old are obsessed with bows and it gets pricey after a while trying to keep up with all the different colors and sizes and styles that they want! Ha ha ha! So here is a great solution!
You can use up your scrap yarn and make your little girls the hair bows of their dreams! These are so sturdy and stand up to a significant number of elements. My 6 yr old, the cheeky lil thing in the picture ha ha, refused to take hers off during bath time and even after it was submerged many times it still bounced back and looked great the next morning!
These bows are fast and easy so lets not wait another minute longer! Lets get to the pattern and learn how to make these together! Oh and no worries, if you are visual learner like myself I have included a YouTube tutorial to help you out as well!

2. H hook 5 mm

Lay the piece flat with the seam in the back center. Scrunch the center together and with separate yarn wrap around the center approximately 25 times (or to your desired thickness and width) tightly. Tie off in a knot on the back (seam) side. Using the small holes on the ends of the barrette and a separate piece of yarn, sew your barrette onto the back of the bow and secure with knots. For extra security you can use hot glue to help adhere the barrette to the bow.
