I also have an unhealthy obsession with bows!!!

This is very cute and it would be very easy to make.

If you can make a fancy bow like that, attaching the birdcage will be easy.  I have tried and failed to make bows look that adorable, but it’s definitely not expensive to test it out.  You probably need 1/8 a yard of fabric, maybe up to 1/4 yard.

(oh, and I forgot to mention that I’m moderately crafty, so I continue to be impressed by how hard it is to make perfect bows.)

I really don’t think it would be that hard to make.

I can relate to your unhealthy obsession to bows!! Check out Claire’s and add tulle to it.

It looks really easy – give it a try and let us know.

This all depends if you want to wear it as one piece or two.  Don’t forgt you may want to take the veil off and just wear the bow at the reception.  You can but a simple birdcard veil like this and attach your own bow that you make that is the eight color and size (depending if you want it as big as Aretha Franklin’s hat at the inauguration probably not.  I found this veil at http://www.bridiesbaubles.com/fv730.html (the feather flower at the top is NOT attached) the veil is plain.

I saw this on oncewed.com today and the bride is wearing something similar to what you like and the bow is detachable. Thought I would share.

Ok well I am fairly crafty and always one of those I can make that myself people regardless of what it is… And to me that bow looks like it is 3 seperate pieces of material.


It to me personally looks like a finished piece of  Round Material that has been finished on the edges and  pressed

Same as the center it looks like a finished rectangle of material that has been finished and then used to gather the center of the bow…

The bottom piece looks to be finished and then pleated and probably has some hand stitching to hold it together….


I would get some cheap fabric and give it a few trial runs… i think through trial and error you could do this
