|A.||Take a length of ribbon. Starting at the back, wrap the ribbon around both pegs,|
|wrong side of the ribbon facing you, ending with both ends in front|
|B.||Place the left ribbon to the right of your bowmaker|
|C.||With the right ribbon, go around the left ribbon end, over towards the front then back under ribbon A|
|D.||Bring the right ribbon end over the top of the back ribbon, right side of the ribbon facing up|
|You are finished with essentially the first square knot|
|Next is another square knot to complete the bow|
|E.||Create a loop by bringing the left ribbon back towards the left side of the bowmaker|
|F.||Bring the right ribbon over and through the loop just made from the left ribbon, ending to the right|
|Pull both ends tight.|
|Remove the bow from the pegs and adjust if needed, tighten both ends carefully.|

Crafts are here
Crafts are here, crafts are there,
My craft supplies are everywhere.
I really should clean this mess,
but I like it I confess.
Floor is littered, chairs are piled,
Kitchen's looking pretty wild.
On the table, counter too,
Seems that any place will do.
Hall is stacked with cartons high,
filled with things folks like to buy.
Garage is full, but so far....
there's still room to park the car.
I never have an idle day,
New ideas come my way.
Don't know yet what I'll create,
but my imagination's great.
My family smiles, they don't complain,
although at times I am a pain.
but when all is said and done,
I really am a crafty one!
