Default Bows for a softball team

Hello! I have been asked by a highschool softball team to make some "cool" bows for the girls softball team. It is for the varsity team - all I can think of is doing pony o's for them or some sort of headband. I can't imagine high school girls wanting to wear actual bows. Any suggestions - I can't get past a wall for this one
Thanks!

I see lots of older girls wearing bows now, although i don't know about "athletic" girls. The "Raggie" type bow would be cute, you could use their team colors and some softball material or ribbon.

I do the spikey bows (firecracker) that Wendy (SpunkyMunky on etsy) has the tut for. I put them on pony-oKs. ribbonheaven.com has some really cute softball ribbon. I bought 10 yards and never have used it.

I have that same tut, those would be good too. Whatever you decide to make I would attach them to a pony so that they don't lose them when playing.

I am liking the spike bow idea - and I like the softball ribbon - to add in the pony o's along with thier school colors. I was also thinking of a FOE woven headband in their school colors .......... I will be making up a few samples and see what I like best
Thanks!

My dh made me watch the Womens softball college world series on ESPN this last week. All of them wore headbands.. some of the glitter which were super cute. Most of them had the headband then a plan ribbon tied around their ponytail. I was actually surprised to see so many of the with long hair. ANYWAY, you could do some cute glitter headbands (do they have glitter foe)... Then you could do the pony O with the spikeys in the softball and school colors.

Show us pics when you get them done!
