Adoption is the gift of life.  Each and every child that has ever been adopted or is available for adoption is alive because their birth mother chose life.  I am so grateful to those women who make a selfless choice and give their child a chance at life.  My husband chose our daughter’s first name and it happens to mean LIFE as well.  Zoe Ameris means Life, Promised by God.”

As a result, we’ve named this fundraiser Bows for Life.  All of these bows are made with grosgrain ribbon.  I use alligator clips lined with 3/8″ coordinating grosgrain ribbon.  Most of the clips are only partially lined; meaning the top half of the clip, where the bow attaches to the clip is lined, but the bottom half (the part that goes into the hair) is unlined.  I am more than happy to make your bow exactly how you prefer.

We will be selling these a few different ways.  You can host a Bows for Life party at your home or church and I can come and share our story and have all of my bows available for immediate purchase.  You can contact me with your order and address, add $2-$5 for shipping (depending on the size of your order) and pay through the donate button on the right; your bows would arrive to your door in about a week (depending on your order).  And lastly, for my local people, you’re more than welcome to schedule a time to come by and shop right out of my home.  All I ask is that you give me 24 hours notice so I can vacuum and light a scented candle before you arrive!  If you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to contact me.  If you don’t see a color you’re looking for, just let me know and I can probably get it within a few days.


If you choose to order online please include the following in your order:

1.  ribbon color

2.  bow size (itty-bitty, small, medium, or large)

3.  what color ribbon you want your clip lined with

4.  whether or not you want your bow to have the “tails” or not (see the difference between the medium and large bows in the collage)

5.  whether or not you’d like the center with or without a knot.  The itty-bitty bows look best with the knot in the center because the bow itself is so little (again, see the difference between the medium and large bows in the collage).


Most of the mini clips are about one inch in diameter.

I can add any of the fabric appliques from the mini clips or the resin appliques seen below to any medium bow.

Here are all four sizes for comparison:


These hand-sewn fabric and crochet flowers are attached to an alligator clip. I can use just about any fabric. You can even provide the fabric if you’d like. I’d need about 12″x4″ of fabric for each flower.

Please share this link with all of your friends who have daughters, granddaughters, and nieces.  100% of the proceeds will go directly to Zoe’s adoption fund.

**All of the ribbon and appliques are subject to change if I run out at any time and/or am unable to reorder.  I will try to update this page as soon as possible if this ever happens.**
