Bow Tie Mania & Giveaway

Recently I ran across some fantastic Bow Tie’s on Etsy.  What I like about them is that the fabric’s were striking, colorful, bold and not the boring norm I see in retail shops.  So I reached out to do a feature of them on my blog.  What I discovered is that is never to late in life to find your passion and when you do just go for it.

DIY Chevron Print Shirt



A few days ago I had on this cute Turquoise and White Chevron Print Top that I made a while back.  My daughter said I want you to make me a shirt like that.  I am always flattered when my children ask me to make something for them.  So I gladly told her yes and the next day headed to Hancock Fabric to find just the right fabric.
