After I made that first bow, I was hooked...so naturally I showed it off to everyone. One of my friends asked if I could please make her one to match her boyfriend's bow tie. The bow tie is purple and gold striped for his fraternity, so I knew I wanted the bow to be shiny and fancy too!

This one was so different from the first. I used wired ribbon (because I liked the color best), and that made it a little harder to work with. I did invest in some craft wire and Fray Check, so in those respects it was easier. After I made the purple part, I wove the gold through so that it wasn't quite so bulky (plus it mirrors the stripes on the bow tie!).

I love it...everyone keeps telling me that I could make a fortune selling them in all sorority colors or just in general...we'll see!
