They were Bad! Yes, I made bad a proper noun. They were that Bad. Have you made anything yet?
I made quite a few bows for myself in high school and college, but that was... *cough*20*cough* years or so ago. A few years ago I followed instructions from the Girly Things site to make some bows to match my girls' Easter dresses. (My Mom helped with some of the sewing parts, we made a headband and put a loopy bow on it, the headband was awesome... sort of like a big scrunchy, gathered white eyelet over elastic... the bow, not so much... LOL.)
THIS time around, I've made 2 flowers and a pony-o thingie... gonna try to get pics of them tomorrow and post 'em.
Haven't attempted a true "bow" lately, though.
(I had already heard of at least some of the links you posted, but I did make note of all of them so I can check them more carefully later.)
