Thanks to her Mommy’s obsession, Isla has amassed quite a collection of bows and has been running short on bow real estate lately. I am not too crazy about the bow holders that I made way back in July, and ever since I saw this one, I have wanted to redo them. Leave it to Ms. Home-Maker to make the prettiest, classiest bow holder that I have ever seen! I was just not up for making one like that since it involved paint and probably nails. Too complicated.
Then I saw this fabulous bow holder made by my super awesome Penpal (who is the bestest penpal of all times ever, HA!), and I promptly asked her for instructions on how to make it. Unfortunately it also called for paint, and I am too stressed right now to deal with paint and the mess that comes with it, but I really liked the way that it eliminated the fabric tail that most bow holders have. I really hate craft projects; they really stress me out.
So I decided to try making a fabric bow holder, since it meant using already decorated fabric and hot glue! My kind of project :). Just add a little batting to make it puff out.
I bought the fabric to coordinate with Isla’s new bedroom. Her room is getting a makeover since it will have to serve many purposes in our apartment in Russia: her nursery/her big girl room/guest bedroom/(hopefully) shared room with next sibling who could be a boy!
She has more bows of course, but these were the only ones that were outside her room (she’s asleep so I don’t want to go and get more in case I wake her up). I will keep these ones around longer than the last bow holders because I tell you what, I am not up for any more craft projects right now!
