I love just a simple bow on a brand new baby.
I can't imagine anything sweeter.
So the other night I sent my husband fishing with the kids, and I made bows for this baby that is coming any day now.
Have you heard of BAKERS TWINE?
I am a fan of this stuff!
I found the Bakers Twine at a scrap booking store in Florence, Oregon...but I know they sell it at lots of places.
I got a yard in each color.
I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it!
I made several little bows in each color.
I can't wait to see what they look like on this baby!
I have been collecting ribbons for a while...
you just need about 6 or 7 inches to make a tiny bow.
They turn out so cute!
When I was little they used to stick on baby bows with honey...but now they say honey is not safe for babies.
Did you know that KY Jelly works great though! I just bought a tiny little bottle of it at target.
You put a little dab on the back of the bow, stick it in place, and when it dries it stays wonderfully.
Here is a picture of Lucy 5 years ago, when she was brand new with one of the little bows I would stick in her hair.
p.s. I have been having contractions all day so I think we might be getting really close :o)
