I felt like making bows... and a pretty Flower Bun

I don't know about you, but I'm cheap. I don't like buying bows because where I am they are usually pretty pricing. Buying from online boutiques can also get pricey especially once you add in shipping. So since I love bows in girl hair I learned to make my own. Now the odd time I do splurge and buy something but I usually it's just easier and cheaper to make what I need. Yesterday I just felt like making a few so while we watched a family movie (Hook! Everyone loves Captain Hook!) I took out my bow making supplies and got started. This is what I came up with for halloween:
 Just some cute everyday bows, I really was in the mood for nice simple classic bows, nothing too big or too fancy today:
 I got a  little baggie of these "scrapbook bobble thingies" at the dollar store last year and finally put them to good use, can't wait for winter so I can use these, I have lots of ideas for them:
 These are made with some eyes I bought years ago when I was going through a doll-making phase. I have halloween do that I think these'll be perfect for!
 And lastly I made Kenz some new flower clips. She picked out the flowers at the dollar store a month or two ago and requested some flower clips for her hair. She picked the silver ribbon that I lined the clips with too:
 Something about a classic bun is just pretty on a little girl:

Do you make your own bows, flowers, clips? I found that once I started it turned into an obsession, I have dozens all styles, all colours.
