  1. Well, I’d say you are pretty good at it! Those are great!

    If you need another bow head to look like a present, Izzy like to wear them (and pull them out, and put them in, and pull them out….I think you get the idea)!

    And, obviously, since I’m telling you to send me bows, I don’t know of any tutorials…good luck. I think you are definitely on to something.

    My son has 2,one dog and one cat. The dog one I hand embroidered the face… that was an adventure, because I have never done it before. And the cat was machine embroidered. I am sure that you can alter the pattern to use sewn on eyes and such.
