Birdsong Bows – Annabelle Flower Pattern Review AND Giveaway

One of my super-fabulous, totally wonderful blog sponsors, Birdsong Bows, sent me her most recent pattern to review called the Annabelle Flower pattern. This pattern is top-notch just like all of the other patterns I’ve seen from Birdsong Bows!

If you’ve never sewn a Birdsong Bow pattern, you are missing out.  I would call myself a total novice when it comes to hair bows, but these patterns are always incredibly well instructed and very easy to understand.  I don’t know if you recall, but I made some pretty fun hair bows awhile back from the Funky, Loopy Bow pattern……….

The Annabelle Flower pattern is perfect for those of you that love to sew.  It can actually made from fabric rather than traditional hair bows that use ribbon (though you can use wider, fancy ribbon as well).  It is a wonderful way to add that matching accessory to any outfit for your little one. And perfect for using up scraps!

This pattern can be made as fancy or as casual as you would like.  The examples from Birdsong Bows are made with beautiful Duponi silk and other more upscale materials.  But you can certainly use a cotton fabric to make a more casual look for your little one.

The pattern instructions are so incredibly easy to follow and are shown in step-by-step pictures. Those of you that are visual learners (like myself) will really love these patterns.  Another feature of the Annabelle Flower pattern is the fact that she gives you several different flowers to make such as a three petal or four petal or you can even do a layered look.  There are so many options that you really can make this pattern your own.

Some of my other favorite patterns are:

Today Birdsong Bows is giving away TWO Annabelle Flower PDF patterns here to The Cottage Home blog readers.

  3. PS it’s hard to post comments on your blog…it takes about 3-6 pageloads. If you have your comments in a pop-up window it eliminates the problem. I just thought I’d let you know, because it is a blogger-wide problem, not just for your blog.
