Great tutorial and such a pretty result! I like the dimension you created with the ink.
Great idea for the little “Anna” and “Elsa” in my life. Very helpful instructional photos Sue!
I know of at least two little girls that would absolutely love this hair bow! My 28 year old “little girl” might even wear it! 🙂 Would be perfect for a ballet recital, so pretty!
This is so beautiful! I would take one for me … Thanks for sharing this great idea. You have a real talent!
