Well, I’d say you are pretty good at it! Those are great!
If you need another bow head to look like a present, Izzy like to wear them (and pull them out, and put them in, and pull them out….I think you get the idea)!
And, obviously, since I’m telling you to send me bows, I don’t know of any tutorials…good luck. I think you are definitely on to something.

I started out making table runners and stuffed animals when I was learning to sew and quilt.
If you know how to hand embroider, you can you a hankie blankies
My son has 2,one dog and one cat. The dog one I hand embroidered the face… that was an adventure, because I have never done it before. And the cat was machine embroidered. I am sure that you can alter the pattern to use sewn on eyes and such.
They have new friends too: http://22.214.171.124/merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=001&Product_Code=HBP-NF&Category_Code=Patterns

Email me if you have any other questions.
I use to work for a Bernina dealer (One OF the TOP of the line sewing machines) and we gave classes on just about everything. I taught the kids classes.
WOW sorry about the length of that one.
My oldest would like to know where you are the patterns for the hair bows.
Ok. Wow. Color me impressed. First the cooking talent, now the crafty talent. Girl, your kids are SO LUCKY!
Those are awesome.
