I HOLD ONTO YOUR SECRETS

For awhile (and by awhile..I mean, I dunno, 5 years?!) I've been planning to make goodies to sell on etsy or a similar site. Well, for those years it was more of a passing thought; something I always wanted to do. For quite awhile I wanted to own a boutique somewhere. This summer I made it a bit of a project to finally get started. I'm still perfecting designs and whatnot; but I plan on making hairbows (back ponytail hair bows are the types I'm working on right now, 'cause I love them) as well as skirts. For the skirts I will rotate through sizes (S, M, L) and fabrics. That way, there will only be one or two of the same skirt.  
 
I bought some mom jeans at Value Village to cut into shorts, and decided that I really needed to make a matching hairbow. So for the past few days I worked on the bow you see in the pictures. Hope you like!
