Crochet Hair Bows


You can make them however big or little you like.

What you need:
-Crochet Hook
-Hot Glue Gun
-Fabric Glue
-Yarn Needle
-Optional: ribbon covered hair clip

1. Start by making a chain.

2. Then sc in 2nd ch from hook and sc across.

3. Then turn and create the next row on top with sc stitches. Make as many rows as you like.

4. Once you are done with the last row, start to sc around the whole rectangle, except for the top row you just did. This cleans up the edges. I also try to crochet over the beginning strand of yarn that is left.
5. Then take your yarn needle and thread in the end(s). Make sure the ends are coming out of the back of the rectangle as you will then cut them and dab a little bit of fabric glue over them.
6. Create the middle piece the same way as in steps 1-2. Make it long enough to go around the rectangle to glue. Then tie the ends together and trim excess yarn.

7. Dab a dot of glue from your hot glue gun on the middle front large rectangle.

8. Quickly place the middle piece on it, making sure the middle is on the glue.
9. Then turn over and do a dab of hot glue on the middle back and quickly pull over the front piece and hold in place until dry.

10. Repeat for the other side, but this side will lie on top of the other end of the middle piece.
And there's your bow. So nice and cute.

If you like, you can glue on a hair clip or whatever.

One is perfect to hold side hair back.

Or add two onto ponytails!
