Day 6! In my world of all things boys, I gotta get my girly fix in now and then. Thank goodness several of my friends have girls that I can create frilly little things for.

Once I got started I couldn’t stop, so all of my friends daughters will be rocking a spider web felt bow this Halloween. Link up your Halloween crafts HERE.
