It's really so simple and I did it!!!! The last picture was made my me! Yeah! i can start making pweety hair accessories etc for my lil watermelon! :)

It seems to be an addiction...with the hubs constantly at meetings these days and MIL not cooking, I'm left to entertain myself with MORE crafts which isn't such a bad idea. Below is craft no. 2 of the day:

1. Cut a strip of felt 1 inch wide and 4 (to 4.5) inches long. Cut a second strip of felt that is 1 cm wide and about 1 inch long. Lastly, cut out 2 pieces that will go behind the bow.

2. Dab a little hot glue down the center of the strip. Fold over both edges and press down until the glue starts to dry. This side will be the back of the bow. Don't use too much glue or it will harden and be difficult to work with.

3. Before the glue completely dries, pinch the front middle of the bow until the glue hardens.

4. Flip the bow over and fold up the edges to give the bow little creases. Then glue the strip around the center of the bow. You may need to trim it so that none of it is visible from the front.

5. Glue the 2 ribbon-like pieces to the back of the bow. Make sure that they are the right size and shape before you attach them.

6. Ta da!
