Three free patterns and tutorials to make hair accessories

1) Felt bows

This is your basic bow tie. For this project use felt, leather, suede, or some other non-woven material that doesn’t ravel. The bow is rather quick and easy to assemble and can done mostly by machine if you’d like. Feel free to enlarge or reduce the size as desired. Once you’ve assembled the bow, whipstitch it to a little barrette or a bobby pin for a cute hair ornament.

3) Fabric-covered headbands

Here’s another easy idea for a hair ornament, and you can use your leftover bias strips to make them! Take some plain headbands and cover them with tubes sewn from bias strips. Leave them as is or add a felt bow or bow hair tie.
