Lola loves… A felt bow hairslide

I love this felt hair bow. It’s perfect for bright colour block outfits and gives an outfit a really summery feel. I’ve worn it lots since making it.

All you gave to do is cut the bow shape and then the two ribbon ‘tails’ from your choice of felt and glue them to a hair clip.

Cutting the bow and tails separately gives it more movement, which looks prettier when it’s on.

You can use an image from the Internet as a template but the shape is so simple you probably won’t need to. I drew half a bow on felt with tailors chalk, folded the felt in half and cut round the edge, when I unfolded it I had a perfectly symmetrical bow.

I added detail with a fabric pen but next time I will sew the detail with rope stitch, which I think will look neater and add some extra texture and interest. I can’t wait to try this with different coloured felt as well!

I glued the pieces together and then glued them on to a large silver clip used for finger waves, you can pick a set of these up at most chemists.
