Whew, I had to take a little breather from blogging after Christmas and find my groove again. But, today is a good day and things are getting accomplished! I have so much to tell you, but we'll take it one day at a time. First, a gift I made for my girls for Christmas: a bow board. They have many bows and flowers. Most of them from a cool boutique called Baby Boutique Etc
(which happens to be the same bows the Duggar girls wear often on 19 kids and Counting!) I needed something to hold them on better than the basket they were currently in...so I had an idea to make one myself.
I didn't follow any plan and just totally made it up as I went. First, I knew I wanted it to be "squishy" so I planned on using quilt batting, but this clearance skateboard print fleece was much cheaper. I got a 2X2 board, got it cut in half, and wrapped it in the fleece.
Then, I wrapped the pretty purple sparkly material around it, and secured it in the back with a staple gun. This was the first time I used one of these neat inventions! Finally I wrapped ribbon around it with which to clip the bows and flowers onto. I stapled a the ribbon as well in a few spots.
The bow board is now fully covered in bows and flowers, and I wonder why I bothered to cut my 2 foot by 2 foot piece in half! I also had planned to hang in on the wall by attaching strong ribbon (twine-like) to the back, but decided with a toddler in the house leaning against the wall is best for now.
