So I am going to post a couple pictures of one of the very first hair bows I ever made. In fact, I think it actually was the first one. I made it to match an outfit my daughter has, part of the Gymboree line, Merry and Bright. I would never normally post this bow because it is far from perfect (thankfully my 3 year old isn’t too fussy); however, how amazing are these colors for MARDI GRAS? The grosgrain ribbon used is: emerald, festive fuchsia, and maize.
Here’s the hair bow… and of course Gymboree collection that inspired its creation:
Since then, I think I’ve come a long way with the hair bows. My goal with the M2MG bows and clips that I make is ensuring they’ll look great with lots of outfits and clothes, not just the Gymboree collection.
Happy Mardi Gras everyone! Especially to my fabulous friends in New Orleans. I know you’ll be having a fun time!!!!
Laissez les bon temps roulez!
