So the quilt is coming along slowly. I’m a single mom, full time student, and have one heck of a cold. So the cutting is done but the sewing is going to have to wait a little longer. I did do a small project. This project was made for my daughter. I need to keep her off of Pinterest. Every time we are on the site she seems to find something new to try or make. This time she found a hair bow.
The hair bow was made with some simple supplies, most of which I had on hand. I must admit I kind of have a sewing and crafting problem. I have totes and totes of supplies for all sorts of crafting and sewing projects. I didn’t realize how much I had until I recently moved. I thought my father was going to have a coronary when he saw all of the totes come out of my craft room.
So back to the project. I took some 2 ½ inch grosgrain ribbon and cut it a little longer than I thought I might need. I then sewed a piece of basketball ribbon which I had on hand down the middle of the 2 ½ inch ribbon. We visited Hobby Lobby and found an iron on basketball decal. After tying the ribbon in a bow around a ponytail holder I trimmed the tips of the ribbon. After trimming the ribbon I took a lighter and melted the edges of the ribbon so that it would not fray.
My daughter has a new bow for all of her basketball games. It took only a few minutes to complete and made I daughter happy. Now back to quilting once I get to feeling better.
