It has been a while since I last posted here and how much things have changed around here!
Hope you are managing well and that this situation is not having a significant impact in your life.
I have been sewing a little, not much as I am finding it a bit hard to focus and today, I am here to share something a little bit different from my usual projects but, adorable nonetheless.
I have made several of Jilly Atlanta patterns and some of them several times. Jilly Atlanta’s patterns are classic, lovely and my girls really like to wear the clothes I make them using the patterns. This time however, Jilly is releasing a hair bows pattern! The Clara Bows.
There are five different bows in different sizes and can be used as headband, with a hairclip or bobble, to suit all hair styles and ages.
I just couldn’t stop after making one and got a bit carried away. Here are a few bows I have made.
These are bow #3 using gingham cotton to match the pinafore 😊
I used hair bobbles for these.
Made the option #4 using different fabrics, like broderie anglaise and Liberty Tana Lawn. So sweet!
These are all with alligator hairclips except the broderie anglaise ones (I made two). For these I made one with hair bobble and other with hairclip.
For the bow option #5, used swiss cotton dot and adore the vintage look!
This one is also with hairclip.
For a more relaxed look, made the option #7 in chambray and hair bobble.
Finally, made the option #9 using a lightweight linen and used hairclip.
As usual, the pattern includes clear and detailed instructions and even if, like me, this is not your usual project, you can achieve lovely bows to match all those pretty dresses. Also, I think option #4 and 5 works well for grown-ups as well.
This is the perfect project to use scraps or for children to learn sewing. Plus, it is free if you join Jilly Atlanta Facebook Group. 😊 Yes, that is correct, it is free!
Go on, join the group if you haven’t yet and have fun.
