My First Bow

Today, thanks to the lovely Holly G of Da Holly G Bow, I had the supplies necessary to make my first hair bow! I'd been wanting to experiment with making hair bows out of huipil fabric, and I'm pleased with how this one turned out. The fabric is from Tecpan.

It's a bit time-consuming because I have to hand-sew the fabric to felt (for stability as well as appearance) and apply fray-check before getting started with turning it into a bow. I'm sure I'll get more efficient as I go along, though.

So what do you think?

Love it! Great job, I'd love to see some bows in that lovely fuschia color that seems so prevalent there.

Well...the bow is wonderful but I must say that the model is even more wonderful:)
