Yesterday evening I picked up three rolls of wired ribbon from Michael's. This evening, with my husband's help, I sat down to work on creating the bows. Then I realized neither of us had the faintest clue what we were doing, so I did a quick Google search. This was particularly helpful, though we didn't follow it very closely, so if you think the final result sucks, don't blame the tutorial authors.
Making bows was a lot harder than I thought it would be. My hands are less than happy right now, but I finally got it done. It's held together with pipe-cleaners and attached to my cane using electrical tape.
Here is the bow prior to attachment, displayed in my stylishly craft-gloved hand:
And here it is after attachment to my cane, with a lovely view of our cluttered living-room and the Roku screen-saver playing on the TV.
Pretty pimpin', eh?
I intend to be the most stylin' cripple around. :P
