Only the admin ladies can play. There are guys at work but there is a reason they cant play and thats a good enough explanation LOL
Here is a pic of us the first Bow tie Tuesday
Thats me in the center of course. All Bowties are done by J.Govan Designs. I have a link to her information my other blog which can be found here Jacquetta is the one with glasses and the bun on her head. Diana looks like a chip n doll and I was not the only one who said it either LOL
Yes I know I could just share her links here but its a shameless plug for my other blog ha ha
So I was watching youtube and saw that HGTV had a fathers day bow tie no sew style. I was telling jq that I watched it and she said that is how she got started so I said to myself why not give it a whirl...
The link to the video is on my other blog... I know I could share it here but once again shameless plug for my new blog
(just in case you needed it again LOL)
i dragged out my dread glue gun, fabric, ruler, scissors and ruler and here is what I created...
eeeehhhhh it was alright The band in the middle was tooo skinny so I says I will try one more time.
It was worse the first one. I tucked and twisted and pulled and got glue strings all over the place. Good news is I did not burn my fingers...
bad news, the dog was chewing on something so I had to go fuss at him in that process....
I lost my scissors
I lost my middle fabric piece (never did find it and had to cut another one that is when I realized I lost my scissors and the ruler and the marker)
as I mentioned above lost my marker
Lost my ruler
all that work and I got a blah... Totally disappointed.
I was not quite ready to go to bed yet so I said to myself.. Karen why not try the denim fabric.
I took JQ advice on the second fold of the bow I did not fold it over like the video suggested in the middle I cut off 2 inches so my measurements was 8x5 and I folded the ends about 1.5 inches.
When I folded the it the second time I put glue on the corners in the back. They were not staying down.
The fabric was much stiffer so the fold was easier to form...
Here is my third attempt... I am quite proud of it.... if I do say so myself
I glued a pin on the back of it, instead of the part that wraps around the neck.
It has been decided to save it for next week!
