Patriotic bows and other useless information
I've been pondering for a while on how to make some type of patriotic/Independence Day hair bow for my girls. I thought about stars, fireworks... finally I just pulled out my ribbon, located all the red, white, and blue I could find, and tried some things. I made Katie's bow first, trying to do stars. While they do have five points, the angles are a little soft and abstract, and so I decided it is a cute bow--but too much work and not "Star" enough. So for Anna, I just made a big ribbon burst pattern. Easy enough. Maybe next year I'll attempt something else. For now, I think they're super cute and I didn't even go buy new ribbons for it. My next bow goal is going to be rainbows, and I still really want to get bumble bees done sometime. I have a notion to maybe sell the rainbows and donate the proceeds to the Minot flood relief. Get it? Rainbow after the storm? anyway. Just a thought.
