As if I need one more hobby

I keep seeing all of these cute bows everywhere. And tons of people make them.

So, I start thinking, if other people can make them, then why can’t I? Sure, I already do blog designs, and have a full time job, but what’s one more thing?

I’m not incredibly good at it, but I would say I’m learning. There is no glue showing, so that’s a start, right?

This is the first one I made for #1 for the Fourth. It is red, white and blue and matches her dress. (Please ignore her lack of pose, she’s getting quite stubborn lately…what am I saying, she’s been stubborn!)

And, the second one I made.

And a couple more I made after my wonderful step-dad sent me a bow maker.

Those little ones sure did look cute on #1’s pigtails today.

So, since I’m a changed momma, I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot more of these in pictures lately!

When I have time, of course!
