I will think on the idea of making a bow with a combination of the three colors... Maybe pinwheel...or.. an8 figure bow..really simple...

It's law here for all schools to have uniforms and I hate it. But I don't care if my girls bows match. they wear whatever bow they want since that's the ONLY way to show their personalities. However I have done some with green,tan and white (they wear khaki bottoms and green or white shirts and the plaid is more green) I also went and snagged the mascot or school symbol from the schools website and put it on botlecaps. And definately korkers!! Good luck! HTH

This is exactly what my girls did before we moved (no uniforms now, YIPPEE!) They wore whatever bows they wanted, We had a huge variety. All kinds of characters, holidays, seasons, etc. It was the one way for the girls to show who they really were.

If you have to stick to uniform colors make a variety....korkers, pinwheels, stacked.....Good Luck.

Get a used uniform for cheap and cut it up making flowers, fabric bows, etc. if you're looking to match exactly.

I wish my kids had uniforms! Even in 1st grade, it seems like a fashion show or a competition.

You can do so many things with those color combos. Grosgrain flowers, korkers, stacked, loopy. Good luck!

I make uniform bows and headbands for a private school here and the woven headbands sell great to the older girls there. I'm attaching a pic as an example. The headbands in the pic were actually not made by me. A HG offered these for sale this spring and I bought them from her. But I make my own now.

Also, what about making her some cute thin headbands with glitter ribbon? You could also make a regular navy grosgrain ribbon headband with an interchangeable loop to add the korker, flower clips, bows, etc.
