Default Ghost Clippie Instructions

Hey ladies, I saw a question on how to make the ghost clippie and though I havent made it as a hair clip, I did make a ton last holloween to sit around the house as "decoration" ( it was way before I got into bows... which you will be able to tell from the bow I made, LOL. This year I'm planning on making them for my daughter as clips. ANYHOW, just wanted to let you guys know they are super easy to make
Take a stitch to the top of a 2 1/4" ribbon or 1.5" whichever you prefer. Once you get to the end pull it tight and it will cinch, sew your sides together and add a bow... if my instructions aren't clear you can feel free to PM me.
I haven't seen instructions for these, so I hope I'm not stepping on toes posting these.

heres one of mine from last halloween. It isn't great, but you get the idea

Oh, I don't suggest putting the mouth too close to the eyes like I did... looks kind of like a nose, which actually makes this look a little like a white long haired puppy dog

Yours is soooo cute I just had to try one for a bow swap I am doing this month and it turned out really pretty darn cute! Thanks so much I just looked at your pic and did it with what I have at home and I used a black pom pom for the nose. It turned out pretty darn cute! Thanks again Michelle

Very cute, it looks like it should be sitting on top of a wine bottle.

I'm so glad you guys like the little ghost I have never thought to put him on a wine bottle before..TOO CUTE!!!!

I did not hole puch ribbon, though that may have been easier I just did it myself out of 3/8" ribbon, 5/8" probably would be better. Once I start making them for this year I'll do a few things differently. I may use 3" ribbon so it's longer and the bow will be a lot better then last year, I hope, LOL.
