• DIY: Fabric Bow Belt

    I’m surprised it has taken me almost a year of being completely obsessed with bows to make this simple fabric bow belt. It’s been spinning around in my head for a while, but for some reason it just never materialized until now.

    Originally I was going to make it honeysuckle (since it’s the color of 2011 or haven’t you heard), but this mustard yellow fabric was calling my name that morning and it goes with everything. I especially love it with this polka dot dress.

    If you’re sickly obsessed with bows like me, I’m sharing my process to make this easy bow belt with  directions and photos over here at Momtastic.

    Proof of my big bow craft obsession:
    Big Bow Pillow
    Bow Hair Clip
    Sequin Bow Shoe Clips
    Big Bow Pencil Skirt

      I wonder if there's a self-help book for loving bows too much. I've made some very cute bow headbands this same way.

      lifeofkevrik- YES you're right! I did forget the wreath bow. It' still hanging, even though Christmas is over because I like it so much!

      You forgot to add your adorable wreath to your bow list! I love the belt. Especially the yellow.

      I AM sickly obsessed with bows! It's so cute! I've been knitting bows and attaching them to things lately. They're so easy, it's hard not to.
