Creative! Love the colors . . . (And it gives me some inspiration about what to do with some vintage bow ties from my family from the 40s/50s.) Happy 4th!

Your project is so amazing! Love the headscarf and bow brooches. I hope you're able to raise tons of money for the schools. Best of luck!!


Brilliant, creative, clever. How are the bows attached? It looks like there is a rope of some sort around your neck. Oh, and I love the shoes!
