Thanks for joining us today! You have until August 10, 2014 at 8PM EST to submit your projects!

 Today's challenge is to make a DIY Bow. (If you prefer, you could make a Birthday Bow! That way you could use it year round!)
Here is a link to Sandy's Tutorial on MFPSpeedyTV.
Here are my samples - I actually ended up assembling these in a rush and they needed more time, practice and patience!


Please visit these DT members' blogs for more samples
