Seashell Kisses Bow Pattern

So looking back at my memories I remember one of my favorite stitches back when I first started crocheting was the Shell Stitch 🙂 When I threw my princess a Mermaid Themed party me and a friend of mine made her a dress where I used the Shell Stitch to make her a top and my friend added Tulle to the bottom to make it the best creation I’ve ever created to this day ! I called it the Mer-mazing Dress ❤

Anyways so I decided to make a bow inspired by that memory with the same stitch ^-^ Let’s go ahead and get started with how to make your own for your princesses (or yourself ;D ) ! It’s a beautiful day to Crochet !

~Tie off and weave in ends. Cut a separate long piece to use to sew and tie around the center~

BUT WAIT !!! Did you know if you just weave in the ends instead of cinching the middle the pattern can also double as a Seashell Kisses Coffee Cozy !! How cool is that ??? It’s not only amazing, it’s MER-MAZING !!

But in this case we’re making it into a bow so let’s stick with that for now 😉 but doesn’t hurt to think outside the box ❤

Attaching The Clip

When it comes to attaching the clip there’s two options:

1st: You can use an alligator clip and hot glue it on the back of the bow

OR

2nd: You can purchase barettes HERE and with these you simply sew the ends onto the bow to attach it 🙂
