Easy! Fast! And Fun! This knitted bow appliqué is great for any project. I used this appliqué to dress up my daughter’s hair.  Change the yarn to achieve larger or smaller bows.  Make one in every color for a little girl's wardrobe.  Attach bows to barretts, headbands, scarves, socks, shoes, purses, t-shirts, and just about any other accessory you can think of.  Or, use it as a gift package decoration, home decor accent piece, quilting project and other sewing crafts!
