Put a bow on it!

In my spare moments this past week, usually while waiting for Percy to fall asleep, ive turned on Portlandia (an excellant show you must watch), grabbed a ball of yarn, my crochet hook and ive been making these crochet bows. I made the red one first, not knowing if it would work, and was very happy with the outcome, so made more. Im thinking they could be worn tied on a ponytail, attatched to a hair pin, attatched to a head band,worn as a brooch, made into a necklace and even hubby said he would wear one (perhaps something not so bright) as a bow tie to a wedding or something. Really, you could put one wherever you want! Im thinking of making a million (not really), and keeping them for gifts, and perhaps to sell. Hope you like them.

 
 
 
 
 
 
Im thinking of making some now with the middle band a different colour too! Who knows, I might start an etsy shop and have them on there for sale soon. Will let you know if Im brave enought to do that!
 
Hope your having a lovely week,
 
Taz
