Tonight I have something completely different to show you. As some of you may know my daughter Iona goes to Cheerleading and dancing. Well, this weekend there is a big 2 day 'Cheer Festival' in our home city. Iona will be competing in Solo Pom Dance as well as Cheer, Pom, Jazz and Hip Hop teams! We got her a cute little dress for her solo so I wanted to make her a Cheer Bow to match. I followed a simple You Tube tutorial I found on Pinterest which you can find here. The spotty bow is to match her dress the zebra one was a prototype I made a while back. I used a loom band to cinch in the fabric in the middle but some people use a cable tie pulled tight. Either way it will be covered by a strip of ribbon when finished off. I find grosgrain ribbon works best as it is quite stiff and holds it's shape quite well.
Anyway extra practice has been keeping both Iona and I busy this week and we probably won't be around much until next week apart from my scheduled DT post tomorrow.
Bye for now,
Hugs, Shona (and Iona) xx
