Buttons and bows
They look so pretty, you see
And they will look really nice
Underneath your Christmas tree.
This was a rap song a second grade class as Southside Elementary did one year!
You might think that bows would be a nice touch for kids' clothes or headbands, but they are absolutely everywhere now. You could get a Big Shot and accessorize your own clothes. Crystal Bennett is teaching classes in how to make holiday cards, and this is a first for her and a friend, venturing into fabrics http://web.me.com/almanzorj/Stampin/Workshops.html.
I have been sewing since I was thirteen years old, so when I see something like this, I instantly know how easy it would be to jazz up something.
Think about how easy it would be to put all these bows on the sleeve of a bridesmaid's dress. Then, after the wedding, your bridesmaid could decide for herself whether to keep them. I really love the embellishments, but not everyone is as frilly.
