This was by far my favourite fabric this season: pretty, red and white striped, soft to the touch, natural cotton.
(I also made my Absolute Beginner Scarf Tutorial with it.)
While it reminds me of Christmas candy cane this close to the holidays, red and white is one of those classic combinations for throughout the year.
I sure loved making these little bow hair clips with this cotton.
Bows are one of those things that have been on my -very long- to-do list....
I've been dreaming of some in other pretty, girlie fabrics but also in tulle.
Now all I have to do is find the precious time to make some more....
