Default bows out of tulle

So I made some tutu's for my hospitals gift shop and they now want bows or something to match the tutu made out of tulle. I was going to do like a woven headband with matching ribbon but they want something made out of tulle and not ribbon. So I would love any suggestions you guys have! TIA

I take Tulle and accordian fold it, then sew it up the middle, cinch it and add a knot like anyother bow. They're super cute. HTH

What size it the tulle you use? I have strips left over that are 6x19. Do you think those would work?

I want to give them a few options so I will try both and tke them to see what they think.

Here is mine http://www.etsy.com/listing/56849672...g-headband-and. I made some like in the tutorial before but I prefer a little less tulle.

I saw some at Hobby Lobby in the wedding section I was thinking about trying to replicate. It looks like you basically take pieces of tulle & fold it up into squares, attach in the center and add matching feathers.

Btw, a friend suggested I contact our 2 local hospitals to see if they might be interested in having me sell some of my stuff.
