Mario Hair Bows and Bow Ties

Can you tell I’ve been on  a sewing kick lately?

 

I just listed  these adorable Mario hair bows and bow ties in the Pink Toe Press Etsy Shop! They are handmade by yours truly!

Clip-in hair bows are the perfect way to dress up a ponytail; a great way to get your toddler ‘s hair out of her eyes. Clip-on Bow Ties are the perfect addition to Junior’s little suit, or a  fun addition to your favorite dress shirt.

Easy to wear; Ready to ship! Order yours now! They are a great addition to a bachelorette party or a lovely gift for your groomsmen.  Also available in a set of “His and Hers” Bow Tie and Hair Tie (but you can keep them both for yourself, if you like).

Just Listed-Mario Brothers Toiletry Bags

Happy Monday!

I’m so happy to introduce a new set of Toiletry and Make Up Bags to the Pink Toe Press Etsy Shop!

These bags are a  fun bunch! They feature everyone’s favorite Italian Plumber: Mario …and all his friends!  A great gift for boys and girls, these bags are durable, attractive, and spacious. There are TWO sizes available: One Boxy Bag ( think DOP Kit) and a smaller pouch (for pencils or makeup).

The bags are of durable construction and fully lined. You can see the bright, colorful lining in the photos above. The bags are sturdy and quilted with an interfacing to maintain their shape. The boxy bags will hold up in your carry-on or your suit case  on travel trips. Tuck one in your book-bag to keep your computer chargers, stylus, and mouse all in one place! I keep one in my purse with my phone charger, a spare pen, and lipstick!

 

Two awesome Mario   fabrics make these a great gift for girls, boys, or adults!  One features all your favorite characters from the games. The other design (in blue) shows a few of your favorite characters running along blocks with Piranha Plants and Goombas. Also shown are the matching hair bows/ bow ties.

Today I am here to show off some cute little bows made from CUSTOM fabrics inspired by Paint By Number paintings. One bow features a forest scene and a graceful deer. The other bow features a handsome flamingo.

Welcoming an Outta This World NEW Project

Happy Saturday! Here is a sneak peek of new items from Pink Toe Press! These cute little hair bows are made from my (obsessive) collection of fabrics. Many fabrics are hard to find, vintage, or out-of-print.

These bows are made with Retro-Styled Space Kid fabric. I love the bright, bold colors and the lovely sky blue background. These would pair well with a summery dress in blues or reds.

They are hand sewn and folded. Each bow has an alligator clip on the back, but I am happy to customize with French Clips or even a pin. If you order them from my Etsy Shop, you can choose the backing that is right for you!

Great for little ones and adults. They’re bound to turn heads!

New Accessories in Etsy Shop: Sailor Moon Bows

The newest addition to Pink Toe Press is inspired by the first Anime that I watched obsessively often in my youth: Sailor Moon. Sailor Moon has just celebrated its 20th anniversary AND Toei Animation released an newly animated version of Sailor Moon called Sailor Moon Crystal that very closely follows the Manga storyline.

I recently started making cute hair bows. The bows are made using origami folding techniques and cotton fabrics, and are unique to Pink Toe Press. They are available in several sizes and many are made with vintage fabrics. Perfect for young and old, they are a lovely and unique accessory.

A NEW addition to this line of hair bows is a “brooch” in the center styled after the costumes of Sailor Moon and her friends the Sailor Senshi.

The brooch designs are created by yours truly. This brooch was inspired by Sailor Moon’s locket from the original anime. I changed the design a little bit so that it would be clear at the 1-inch size. The brooches are made using my 1-inch professional button maker and are secured with a dab of glue. More designs are coming soon. I’ve even got some requests!

They would make a lovely gift for the Sailor Moon fan in your life. They could also be a fun cosplay accessory. The larger-sized red bows would be great for a Sailor V or Sailor Venus costume!

While my brooches are currently offered with Alligator Clip backings, I may make them able to attach to cat collars for the little Luna or Artemis in your life…

Kawaii Folded Fabric Hair Bows

Origami folded hair bowA classic red bow looks good with any hair color

Just in time for Valentine’s Day: Kawaii hair bows made from folded fabric. These are the perfect gift for ladies (or guys) who could use a fun new accessory.

For the last decade, I’ve had short hair. I started growing my hair out last year and it is now finally to the length where I can do a bit of an up-do. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find any accessories that fit my style and color preferences. So I made these cute bows to fill that gap!

Origami folded hair bowEach bow is carefully hand folded.

They are made from cotton fabric that I prepare and fold into the bow shape. They are then carefully pressed and secured to a felt backing. Each bow has an alligator clasp in the back and is quite durable despite its lovely appearance. There are currently two sizes available with an assortments of colors and patterns. Many of the patterned fabrics are from my collection of vintage fabrics, so there are limited quantities.

The bows clip easily into any style hair. I like putting one on a ponytail, but you could use them in pigtails, short hair, long hair…the possibilities are endless! Check out Pink Toe Press for more information and to order one of your own!
