Heart Bow Tutorial and Free Pattern

My daughters have really gotten into wearing bows. My baby asks for them every time 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. My daughters only love the bright pink ones, so I thought I’d make some heart bows for them to wear.

I’ve made a no-sew bow tutorial in the past, and my baby wore those bows all the time. I had this idea of creating heart bows, but I could only find inspiration for crocheted bows so I decided to create one myself and share a free pattern with all of you!

I love making hair bows. Especially bows with a theme. I’ve made some Easter hair bows: a butterfly, a bunny, and a lamb with free patterns. I’ve also made some animal hair bows with free patterns!

Any type of clip will work. I’ve found that alligator clips work best for my daughters’ hair, but any clip will work. You could also glue the bow onto a headband for babies! These would look adorable on a little baby’s head!
