Over the years I’ve seen bows popping up everywhere, and while I would have previously called bows just a trend – they’ve become a classic mainstay now as far as I’m concerned! Interestingly enough – I decided the theme of this post yesterday when I saw a gorgeous example on the front page of Etsy, but today all these bows have taken on an even a greater significance for me. Because when you’re making a bow, essentially you’re tying a knot. And – my cousin got engaged tonight! So you should probably expect some handmade wedding posts from me as I’m so excited to help her with all the planning. She and her fiance have already decided that the wedding will be next summer, so that means the next few weeks she’ll be researching venues and soon after that shopping for a wedding dress!
Now – back to the topic at hand, bows! I’ve found some fun items to feature today, from a variety of Etsy shops.
Secda has a very sweet Etsy shop, Secdus, where she sells pillows – many embellished with sweet bows. During the day Secda helps design lingerie for her families business, but after work she likes to create for herself as she finds it really relaxing.
Lime Green Modern has a beautiful Etsy shop featuring her own metal work. I’m pleased to learn that she makes her own silver pendants and ear wires by hand in her studio, all out of reclaimed and recycled silver. The second I saw her bow necklace I knew I had to post about it.
Lamorez lives in Malaysia and loves to sew! How sweet is this red purse I found in her shop? Made of canvas, because of it’s size you could use it for pretty much anything: a diaper bag, school tote, an every day purse, and the list goes on!
