I have three styles I make: Originally I used ribbons for ties but I now have elastic and adjustable beads. For interested parties I also add fog filters and nose support. UPDATE: here’s what I’ve made in the past few hours
We put another afternoon into our headboard. We’ve continued to adapt our plans as we’ve seen progress. We adjusted some of the cuts as the tight fit moved things around a little.
