Default tip for a tutu bow holder

I have been making these for 2 years and they are a lot of work! But everyone LOVES them. I had all of these extra tutus form HH and it occured to me, why don't I try using them to make a bowholder? Oh my gosh, it was so much easier. I literally just put the skirt on and glued it down. It was all even and the tulle didn't need to be sewn or cut like I usually do! I think it looks good and I am going to start using these all of time! I just sold this one to a mom today and brought it to my dd's preschool and got 2 more orders!
Just thought I would share this little shortcut

through trial and error, I figured out that a stretch knit is the best fabric to cover them with. It is the easiest to work with. Chenille also works good. But I prefer the stretch knits, hobby lobby has a ton of cute fabric that I get for these there.

thanks for the tip on stretch knits. I have always used calico; they look good by the time I'm finished, but it takes more forever to get it to lay flat/straight! Going to HL tomorrow to buy some different material!

How do you finish off the back? I too love these, but they are so time consuming. I just don't do them because of that reason....

These are sooo cute! I bet they take a lot of time but such a fun way to show off and "store" bows. Thanks for sharing your work. Maybe one day I'll tackle them!!

Oh that is beautiful. I've not attempted these yet, probably cause it seems time consuming. If you don't mind me asking - how much did you charge for that - I would say it could go for some good money considering the moonstitch and felts, etc.? Very nice.
