Default Re: Hairbow holder question-Princess dress

I have made a couple and they are really nice but I would like a better way to attach the toole. I can't figure out how to do it besides just hot glueing it to the fabric on the front of the bodice.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks,

Karen

How about using a piece of ribbon and tying it on like you would make a tie tutu and the hot gluing the ribbon/tulle across the front and wrap a bit around. Hope that made sense Going to be trying this soon and that was my plan.

I may try that but I think I may try sewing it onto elastic first as I have already cut my toole and to tie it would make it too short this time.
thanks!

This is exactly how I started doing mine, the "tutu" part is just so much fuller when I do it this way.

As for covering the back, I cover the back with felt in a coordinating color to the fabric covering the bodice. Be sure to cut out your felt a "smidge" smaller that the actual size of your bodice so that the felt doesn't show from the front.

I just wrapped my fabric around the back then put ribbon around it so the fabric would not ravel then I saw somewhere to put felt on the back and it looks neat

I like this idea, so far I've been using the same fabric as the front, and using felt would mean I have more pretty fabric to make more bow holders.

Exactly! I never did the fabric on the back, I was always afraid it would fray at the ends . . . and felt doesn't fray!

I use fray check on my fabric backs- no fraying, and it looks nice and finished!
