bow tie pins

I love a bow.
So, I had to make some Clara Bow Tie pins.
Thanks Colette Patterns for the tutorial.
I changed it a little bit with the middle piece.
The stripe one is cut on the bias and is made out of quilting cotton. The other two are made with shot cotton. I love shot cotton and after having not used it in a while now want to get my hands on some more. It's so soft to touch.
A sneak peek at a new dress in the background there.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend. I planted some organic vegetable seeds this weekend- gourmet lettuce, astro arugula, pink beauty radish and sugar ann sweet pea. A lot more to do with the garden now that it is is Spring. The rhubarb and chives are coming back nicely. Also, picked up some delicious dark chocolate sea salt caramels from the Brooklyn Flea Market this weekend. Yum!
