These are what I've been sewing up for fun lately.
Cute eh? Little shadowboxes full of bow-ties. Or just bows, I guess; the 'tie' is optional. And since I had my very fist fancy schmancy business fair to trot them off to (very small scale, but still lovely), I got to try my hand at a little lepidoptery.
Now, I had meant to get a nice photo or two of the display I had set up, but to be honest, I was a little frazzled that day, and it just didn't happen. Hopefully I will remedy this next time I get to go out among people and show off my wares.
Bugaboo is the kind of kid who wears ties, often of his own volition, sometime for no reason at all. He's really big on costumes and accessories. He wore his tie the whole morning (of the business-fair thing). He even snatched a cape from my display to pair with it (he's cuter than my mannequin anyways). He looked a bit like a tiny magician; perhaps I need to look into top hats.
Bow Ties! A whole happy pile of 'em. Now, however, I do have some actual work to do (took the week off for visitors, now it's time to play catch-up).
Oh, one final note from the business fair; my 'Wandering Seamstress' Geocache is hidden in my display. It was spotted by one cacher, whether or not it gets logged... I'll give a heads up next time she's out and about, ready to be found, until then you can check her out at the geocaching website, with TB46K8T for a reference code.
