I was going to add anything with feathers-that seems to be going well for me, anyway

My GD is 15 and loves basic tuxedo bows, itty bitty bows, woven headbands and flowers. And I made her a clip for her hair using 2 boutique bows with tails to wear for St. Patrick's day and her friends loved it. SHe also loves big flowers and anything with Swarovski crystals.

Hope that helps.

That is really cute, do mind telling how to make it, I am very new here and to bow making?

The longer the better, the one in the picture is a 19", I think. I bought a bunch on ebay from China. I like the ones that have a different color metal zipper part so you can see the zipper feature. When I pull it apart, you'll have two pieces so you can make two flowers from it. If you get a shorter zipper, you'll have to use both sides to make one flower to get the fullness. I've seen girls wear rings made from this too. When I went to a trade show late last year, they were selling necklaces made from zippers for big $$$$$.

I don't have any instructions, for my first one, I just bought a jacket from the thrift store for dirt cheap (I think $0.90) and yanked out the zipper and then took my glue gun and went to town. I'm sure you can sew it too but I just played until it came out right. Hope that helps you out some. I just did it by trial and error until I got the look that I liked.

Just wanted to add that I was in Walmart yesterday and saw those zipper flowers on a pair of shoes, like black ballet flats! I almost bought them but they didn't have my size. I think you could make the zipper flowers and glue them to those metal shoe clips then add them to shoes!

I wonder where I could find blank clips for shoes? Anyone know? I'm telling you they're HOT! I wonder what Lynn could make out of one of these since she has such beautiful things. I bet she would make my jaw drop again!

I almost hate to ask but would you mind posting a pic or two? I'm so used to working with ribbons and colors and all things cute that I'm hitting wall with this.

Those are stinking adorable! I've seen them around but it never occurred to me to try to make them myself. Great work! Think you'll want to sell a few wholesale?
