Easter Hair Bows and Free Patterns

Use these free hair bows patterns to can make the cutest, coordinating Easter Hair bows! There is a butterfly, lamb, and bunny shape!

I love creating cute accessories and clothes with a touch of whimsy and interest. One of my favorite things to do is add cute animal details to the clothes and outfits I make for my children.

I designed some fun hair bows for Easter patterned after the common Spring animals: a bunny, a lamb, and a butterfly. It would be so fun to coordinate the colors of these hair bows with your Easter outfits! I love making Easter sewing projects!

This isn’t the first time I’ve made animal hair bows. I shared some free patterns for other designs last year! I was an animal lover as a kid, and I still am.

It really shows in my sewing practice because I’ve made a cat romper, a wolf coat, a puppy dog coat, a lizard coat, and bunny baby boots. I’m sure there are even more sewing projects that I can’t think of!

I made half of these bows by tracing and cutting them by hand. The other half I cut with my Cricut Maker.

I wanted to see how they compared, and they were both quick and easy to do. The butterfly iron-on vinyl detail can only be done with a cutting machine, but everything else can be done without a cutting machine.

I love being able to cut with the Cricut Maker, and make a bunch of Cricut Maker projects!
