Bow holder for my sister....

I stayed up last night to finish this bow holder that I made for my little sister, and I don't mean her daughter or something. My father remarried and I have a 9 month old half-sister who is just so precious. I always prayed to God to give me a sister and He obviously heard me!  Even though I am 28 years old, I am still thrilled to have a sister!  I made all the bows that are on it and the bow holder itself except the gerber flower.  There are two ribbons stitched together to make little pockets for the bow so they don't slide anywhere. That is what I did before getting into paper crafting was making hair bows for my daughter and niece and to sell at craft fairs and such. I still dabble when my daughter needs a bow to match a new dress or I get a new sister!=)

   
This is my lil' sis Francesca








Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! I hope you have a fabulous day!

Hugs,

Ah that is so cute sure she loves it. My SIL became a sister at about that same age. Her dads wife and my sil was both expecting at the same time. It took her a while to get used to the idea..lol But now her sister is 10 and it has all worked out very well. She is very close with her. Very much a true modern family.

This takes me back. My daughters are 28 and 25 and oh how I loved hair bows!! I never learned how to make them but made other types of hair ornaments and bought PLENTY of bows. Now I just buy them for my grands occasionally. I hopped over here from Links of Love and so glad I did. Great project and thank you ever so much for the trip down memory lane.
hugs, Brenda

Very cute bow holder. I love the explanation about your sister, because, yes, I thought it was going to say sister's daughter. Makes my daughters 11 1/2 year gap not so big.
