Hey everyone  Smiley For my most recent Mod DIY project http://blog.modcloth.com/2009-02-12-mod-diy-put-a-bow-on-it-or-some-lace, I wanted to expand my wardrobes potential by creating removable bows and lace clips that could give some of my favorite pieces new looks! I hope you guys like what I did. I'd love to hear your feedback Smiley







This project was actually inspired by this vintage polka-dot bow-tie! I love it and I wanted to sew it to one of my dresses, but I couldnt decide which one. To save myself from an impossible decision, I decided to sew hair clips on the back with the bow, so I could attach it and remove it from whichever outfit my heart desired!



I have a ton of vintage lace from my Grandma, so I decided I to make a lace pin. First I sewed the lace to itself creating a double layered ruffle look, then i sewed safety pins to the back of the lace.




For this big yellow bow, I took a leather belt, tied it into a bow, and sewed safety pins into the back of it. If you are worried about damaging the fabric of whatever clothing youll be pinning, I suggest sewing hair clips onto the bow so they wont pierce your clothes.


If you have any suggestions please let me know! I'm still new to Craftster Smiley

THANKS!

I am a combination of jealous and in love with this!! I'm going home and immediately doing this! I have this bolero/blazer-type jacket thing (I dunno which of these it really qualifies as), and I spilled acrylic paint on it at my internship but was too in love with it to throw it away. Now I know what I can do with it!

Bowled over by your bows. And the lace pin is genius!

For some reason the yellow polo/tie reminded me of Charlie Brown...

I am seriously coveting that brown dress/yellow belt tie.
Looks like it'd be killer with an oldschool glamour silhouette.
