My friend is having a baby (soonish) and her baby shower is this Saturday. I didn't want to just buy the same old same old blanket + onesie + hat + booties, but I wanted what I got her to be functional. SO. I bought a ton of ribbon, some onesies, and some hair clips and got to work.

The first set is a princess set. I made two korker bows, attached them to lined alligator clips, and then stenciled a crown onto the onesie. At least, I hope it looks like a crown. lol. I'm not the best at painting/drawing. I did my best, though.

Close up of the bow. It's my first time making bows. They look alright, right?

Second set, buzz buzz, is bees! I hand painted the bees, no stenciling. The pacifier leash is two layers of ribbon sewn together with invisible thread, and then the snap I hand sewed. The bow is pretty basic, and is attached to a lined alligator clip.

They look kind of weird, but like I said, I'm not good at drawing or painting! And if it looks shiney, it's because it's still wet. I couldn't wait. Tongue

Comments/criticism welcomed and appreciated. What do you think?!

I make it Rain dear!

Cute!  Good job on painting those bees. They're adorable and my not-quite-two-year-old sitting on my lap said "Bee, bee" when she saw them, so hey, I'd call that success!  I hope the new kiddo has lots of hair to sport those wonderful clips! (Mind did, but my cousin's kiddos were all bald).

Very cute!  She'll love it!  Your korkers look nice!  I make them allllllllll the time!

One suggestion though.  Since these are going to be for a newborn/infant that probably won't have much hair (atleast enough for those) for quite sometime a good idea would be to get a stretchy headband that matches, make a loop with ribbon on it so that the korker bow can slide into.  That way the baby can wear it 2 different ways for a long time!

Here's an example.

Very very cute...I agree though about the headband idea, my almost 2 year old still couldn't sport those bows, she just has a teeny bit of hair!

Everything is so pretty!  I am making some headbands right now and I'm very inspired by the korkers... thanks for posting the how-to links because I have always wanted to know how to make them and didn't know what they were called. That site is really awesome, all the cute ideas!
