After having a go at this tutorial and realizing that a bow cuff gave the wrist equivalent of a cankle, I decided to play around and make some brooches and hair clips instead. I have quite a bit of leather stashed away and have been waiting for a project to come along that was quick and easy. The leather make a great bow and holds it's shape really well. I'm practising with a couple of different styles of bow and thickness of leather in the hope of making a really big foppish bow that looks all creased but holds its shape like a moulded leather. So far I've managed to make about 20. Maybe I should hock them on etsy, or am I the only one who thinks they look cool ( it wouldn't be the first time).
