Are you talking about using tulle in a bow, or making a bow entirely out of tulle?
I've used tulle to make loopy bows, the pic doesn't have tulle actually in it...sorry

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php...ng_id=39494889

and I've also put tulle behind the shabby fabric flowers, let me see if I have a pic....

Ack the only picture I had wasn't not very good and the tulle was hard to see...sorry.

I've also done stacked bows with tulle between the layers.

Love the loopy bows! What do you use to wrap the ribbon? Embroidery thread??

Talking Re: Tulle Bow?

LOOPY BOW = BEAUTIFUL

Ok so I made a few today.

I cut rectangular strips, 5.5" by 1.5"

Pinched the middle of the strip, joined six together by tying with embroidery thread.

Took 2 stacks of 6 and placed them on top of eachother.

Then I made a 2.5" bow to go on top of it! Whatcha think?

I hope to post some pics later today but I used the rounded fabric flower instructions but used tulle & they turned out *so* cute!! Like round, puffy "flowers" of tulle. I just cut 6 inch squares and used an 18 mm rhinestone for the center.

I make 2 style of tulle bow as well as I use it to "drees up" a few basic bows.

The picture is not great but this is my tulle puff bow.

I also make the tulle "bows" that look like the wands (a little ball). picture of the wands since I could not find one of the "bow". These are great for ponytails.

the wands are not perfect as they are not "styled" yet.

I know how to make the wands, but I don't understand how you turn them into a hair clip. Where do you attach to the clip? Can you share a pic of the back side (where the clip is attached)?
