Heart Bow Tutorial nad Free Pattern // heatherhandmade.comMy daughters have really gotten into wearing bows. My baby asks for them everytime I do her hair. They both love wearing bows and I oblige them (even though they take them out later in the day). I’ve bought some and made some, and my favorites are the neutral, simple ones.
