Bow Bracelet and Crafty Pirate's Horrific Giveaway

I am finding myself fascinated with bows lately. I think I blame Cute and Creepy for that ever since I got that zombie bow that I shared in my last post. hey there are worse things that I could be fascinated with, I guess. I can't think of anything off the top of my head but I know there are worse things out there! ;)

I decided to try my hand at making a bow in a similar fashion as that from Cute and Creepy and I must say, I am pretty please with the result. Here is my first attempt:



I work full-time in the office of a large corproation and, admittedly, push the envelope as far work-appropriateness of my attire. I feel that a funky hair bow may push things over the edge just a little so figured a bow bracelet would be kind of cool yet not at eye level for the business class. :) Plus, I am a bracelet whore so that also makes it a little more fitting.

I made the bow out of a spider web bandana I got on clearance last year. I attached it to a piece of black elastic cut the size of my wrist and then overlapped 1/2" inch to make it fit snuggly. The button/badge/pin is from skulladay.com. (Click here for the Skull-A-Day shop.) I am *REALLY* happy with how this bracelet turned out and will likely make a few more with other pins that I have in my collection. :) Plus, what a great way to use scraps!

If anyone would like a tutorial on this, I can certainly make one.

Also, for 2 more days, Thera the Crafty Pirate is having an uber-awesome giveaway of horrific stuff! Just click on the picture below for details!

Got something to say? Then I wanna hear it! But if it's mean or an ad that doesn't fit with my blog theme, it may not stay for long. Just sayin'. :) And sorry about the word verification. I'm just tired of spambots invading my happy place. :P
