GIFT BOWS

GIFT BOWS This is a quick way to use up some T-shirts to great effect!

The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson —

YOU’LL NEED:

T-shirt

Glue gun

Needle and thread (hand stitching optional)

Felt (optional)

Prep

1. Square up your fabric and cut (using rotary cutter, ruler, and cutting mat) 3˝-wide strips. You will have approximately 4 large loops, and this will make 4 gift bows.

2. Take 1 loop and cut to make a long strip.

3. Fold the strip in half lengthwise, and make 1˝ cuts along the length of the fabric about ½˝ apart—you’re cutting through the folded edge and leaving about ½˝ uncut along the raw edges. (Pssst! I use scissors here, and generally don’t measure.)

Crossings

M'Liss Rae Hawley C&T Publishing PDF

I’ve often been called quirky by my friends. (In checking a thesaurus, I discovered what they really are saying is that I’m idiosyncratic, peculiar, and eccentric!)

My life embraces many crossings, including the countless ferryboat sailings unique to life on the island where I live, as well as the more typical passages of graduation and marriage—or simply the journey to a quilt shop to purchase fabric for the next project. Quirky,

But It Works! is just another expression of my colorful personality and the many crossings in my life.
