How much do you love these tiny bow clips? Would you like to make them to match your little one’s dress? All you need is some leftover scraps from the dress fabric and a pair of alligator clips. That makes it both budget-friendly and eco-friendly.

When my girls were little, I would always make these matching clips for them to wear with any outfit they chose. Fast forward a few years, and I still make them for other kids.
