Having your little one looking gorgeous can take its toll on the bank account. Here are some creative ideas that will jazz up any outfit for under $2!
The classy floppy ribbon bow smartens any look - Loosely tie a bow around the collar. Voila!
If you want to create a bow with a thicker width, try pinning it at the center of the collar, rather than threading it under the collar. This will prevent any bulk under the collar.
Any A-line or shift dress can be enhanced with a thick sash. This can be as easy as using a 60 mm satin or grosgrain ribbon.
Don't forget to fray stop or melt the ends with a candle.
For the daring - A detachable peter pan collar can be an effective feature with a sweater or cardi. Click here for easy to make patterns. Click here for a great tutorial.

Tassels are the perfect embellishment for a summer dress. Simply stitch along sleeve edges, frill hems, or arrange creatively on the bodice. Whether you use single tassels or a string of tassels, the options are endless.
They work for little boys too: try attaching to the bottoms of trouser legs, on hoodie points and to socks!
