Flower Girl Bow

This is little Jenna again... This time sporting a bow made just for her role as Flower Girl last Friday night.

She was the most adorable flower girl I've ever seen. The wedding was outdoors in the amphitheatre at the college from which my husband and I graduated. Jenna rode in a great wooden wagon and just sat there looking precious!! I wish I had a picture of her in the wagon. It was fantastic!

She was a trooper! When I was holding her I could feel her body getting heavier and heavier... she was exhausted!

Me and Jenna!

Spring Hair Bow Models!

Here are a few of my lovely Easter models!

Little Miss Jenna wearing The Chandler II.

Jenna's mom let me borrow Jenna's dress for a few days to pick out just the right shade of purple.

Jenna is proof that your child doesn't need tons of hair to wear a hair bow!

Emma is wearing A Classic Bow.

Her mom liked the Classic Bow style, but wanted it to be sized down a bit so it wouldn't over power Emma's sweet little face.
That is the great thing about Custom Made Bows... you get to have a hand in the creative process!

Daphne is wearing the LARGEST bow I've ever made! In fact, when I made it I was afraid it was too large so I made a 2nd one on a slightly smaller scale.
Daphne's mom loves big girly bows so she picked the larger of the two.
One of my goals is to create bows that match you and your personality!

My very own Riley sporting her Easter bow clipped to an infant headband.

What would a photo shoot be without a behind the scenes look?...


**Note: this was NOT my Easter outfit! This was my costume for our Easter musical at church!

Here are a few pictures of my daughters modeling my hair bows. This will give you a better idea of the sizes of the bows.
All of the bows (french clip and alligator clips) can be clipped onto infant and girl's headbands. Riley has very little hair so she still wears infant headbands with all of her bows.

Riley wearing The Chandler II again clipped onto an infant headband. Chandler wearing The Chandler. Both bows in pink and white.

And so it begins...

Welcome to Bows by the Miles - Custom Hair Bow Design!

Here's a little bit about me and why I started making hair bows.

I started making hair bows for my two daughters out of frustration! Frustration with never being able to find just the right bow that really made the outfit. I didn't want gigantic lacy bows or teeny tiny bows that get lost in all the hair. I just wanted it to be exactly what I wanted and nothing else!!! Is that too much to ask! :) As a stay at home mom, it was very important to me (and my husband) that I not waste our money on a hair bow that I "kind of" liked or one that "might" work.

Today I can buy an outfit, bring it home and make a bow that I love. One that matches the outfit and still reflects the personalities of my girls.

Now, here's how my frustration with store bought hair bows can help YOU!
I can customize any of my designs to match YOUR outfits and the personality of your daughter/granddaughter!

Is she CRAZY about Disney Princesses? Does she love one princess more than the others? Or, is she like my oldest daughter and loves them all equally???

Is she into cheer leading, softball, baseball, basketball, football?

Is she a plain and simple, no frills kind of kid?

Is she an ALL frills girly-girl?

Does she have think hair?

Does she have really thin hair?

Does she have a TON of bows and really needs a place to store them?

If you answered "yes, that's my daughter/granddaughter" to any of the questions above, I can help you and your daughter find bows that she will want to wear over and over again.
