I am preparing to post a tutorial on a "Reusable Ribbon Bow"--the pictures are not behaving. Somehow this "draft" got published in part, and now some people are looking for it. Sorry--hopefully it is coming soon! BUT there is a pattern posted at the bottom of this page!!
I looked at many images on "Google Images" and on Pinterest that had no design author credited. I did not want to copy anyone's designs--but wanted them to "inspire me." These three designs are my own work, if they are too much like someone else's previous work--please inform me--and I will gladly give that person credit.
(Left) Lizbeth, size 20, # 122 Carribbean
(Both on right) Lizbeth, size 20, # 633- Purple Dark
Then I set about to try to create my own design. I'd like to thank Sue W. and Sonya L. who first tested this pattern for me. Jane Eborall gave it a final test, and proofread my pattern and made wonderful suggestions!Introducing--Jennifer's Button! done in Lizbeth, size 20, #102 Western Sunset (left) and #141 Purple Twist (Right).
