>gloves to bow

>new hair bow
I started to make a pair of lace gloves Sunday made out of size 40 thread and a size 14 steel crochet hook.  It just kept not being right but I kept working at it  thinking it is my imagination It is a pattern I have not done before so I just don’t know where it is going yet right.  Once I got the front of 3 fingers done on both hands.  I just kept looking at them thinking these still look a little big and even if it has a mesh that goes around the back of the fingers that will pull them tighter and shorter it is still not going to be right.  So debating if I wanted to frog 8 hours of work  and start over  well I decided I would start over.  I couldn’t bring myself to frog what I had done to much time with such small thread.  So then I debated on putting it in my sampler book as just an oh well learning experience sort of memory.  Then I was playing with it and decided that it would make an OK bow for my kids hair.  So I got out an elastic for the hair and stated crocheting it too it and pulling the back of the hands parts in  and left the finger parts dangling for ribbon tails for the bow.  This is probably the most expensive hair item I have ever made on accident.  I have made things much more elaborate for the hair that I meant to make and so it was expected.  But when I thought I was making me new fine lace gloves for Easter and I end up with a little girls hair bow something just seems missing.  IMGP3203bowI will go back to making those gloves again.  But probably not till Saturday or Sunday when I sit down to watch the LDS General conference meetings with my family.  In the end I get happy children as they get a new item to wear that mom made so all is good with hugs and kisses from three little girls who get something new.  Wish I had taken a picture of it before I turned it into the bow so you could see from where to where it went.  When I make the next set I will stop at the point that I was at and post what these looked like before it became a bow.  Images from Beetlejuice keep going through my head now.  If you have seen the movie you might know why.

update:

here are the photos of what the fingers of the glove looked like before becoming the hair bow.
