The instructions stated I needed a “fat quarter“. I had NO IDEA what that was and from process of elimination assumed it meant fabric. So I headed to Jo-Ann’s and strolled around looking for scraps of cool fabric. I was about to leave when I was pulled toward their version of the dollar bin…I’m a sucker for them at EVERY store. And there, right in front of me was this:
Last week a friend sent me this LINK and I just had to make the hair bow holder above – because I needed another craft project, right? But seriously, the girls so desperately needed a spot for all of their hair bows to be displayed instead of crammed into a bin inside their dresser drawer.
A Fat Quarter! Then I kinda got it…it’s a scrap of fabric rolled up like a quarter, right?

Want one? The steps were pretty easy to follow if you are also a crafter. Or check out the Headbands, Hair Bows, & Holders updated page for more information if you want me to do the crafting. I’d love to make one to match your daughter’s room or if you need a unique gift for someone!
How do you contain all of those bows??
