Okay, I found this great site for some new bow designs, really great! So, I'm all excited to make them. I dive in, create a tester or two (how do you think Diana's bow collection is so large already?), then start in making them full swing. I'm about 3/4 way through my colors when I realize I'm doing them backwards. Not that it looks bad, just different. They don't look bad - in fact, I really liked them. Until I realized my mistake and made some the correct way - and liked it a lot better. Imagine that. So now I have a bunch of bows made the wrong way, even though they still look good. What do I do?? Well.... I now have TWO new styles of bows!! =) Here's a picture - the first is the oopsey, and the second is the correct.
I call the first one a "butterfly" and the second one by its correct name, "pinwheel". I did these in 1 1/2 inch ribbon, and now I'm working on a smaller version with 7/8 ribbon. I'm really excited about them - I think they'll be really popular. I can also stack a smaller on a larger, creating endless options! So, which do you like better? The "oopsey" or the correct one?
