Back-Tie Bonnet – double ties

** Special Technique, genius idea – VERY EXCITED!**

This video is following on from the alternative technique to the basic back-tie where we threaded a simple strip of fabric through one edge of the rectangle used to pull the fabric together and make the bonnet shape.  Then a lovely ribbon through the other side to make our ties which are going to be visible in photo shoots.

Whilst making this beautiful grey bonnet below I was searching for what ribbon or fabric I could use for the ties that matched with the grey, as I didn’t want to use the same fabric as the main bonnet, the grey waves adding texture and detail tot he fabric would not work cut into a thin strip!  So I eventually found a lovely length of shiny silver ribbon which matched beautifully, I wasn’t just about to pack my ribbon stash away when a piece of gorgeous grey lace showed itself! Ummm which do I choose, they’re both lovely and would both work really well! I decided to try them both so went ahead and threaded both into the bonnet one on each side… I played around with tying one side and then the other making the bonnet shape and holding it up to look… I still couldn’t decide. But hang on, I have just invented an amazing idea! Keep both decorative ribbons and use the bonnet exactly how I’d been playing around with it and you have a bonnet which can be used both ways! Decide during the shoot which tie design to use, even swap the bonnet round mid photo shoot for a different look! I even realised this material looks different on both sides so this grey bonnet becomes reversible as well! Thats 4 bonnets in 1! Woohoo!
