I had an idea to make a bow tie out of ribbon for the CAS-ual Fridays Tie One On challenge. I've made them before-no big deal. I wanted the stripes of the ribbon to go in specific directions so I had to make 3 pieces and boy oh boy did it give me fits! I should have just broken down and gotten the sewing machine out instead of trying to use a needle and thread. The ribbon kept unraveling so I used some scor tape-big mistake. Talk about gumming up a needle and getting sore thumbs...not my finest hour. The bow is not as good as I had hoped, but dang it, those stripes are where I want them. lol Next time I want to make a bow tie I'm using solids.
This is a fun challenge! Who doesn't like using ribbon? Hop on over to CAS-ual Fridays and check out all the fun creations.
