I'd been wanting to make this Fabulous Felt Red and White Polka Dot Bow Necklace for some time.  But on the first try I thoughtlessly sandwiched black satin ribbons between baby pink felt, causing the black to show through.  The horror!  Having done its adhesive best, my trusty Beacon Felt Glue ensured that the felt could not be pried apart.  So I had no choice but to cover up the mistake by adding yet more rhinestones.  Although pretty, the look wasn't in keeping with my other Fabulous Felt bow necklaces, so I resolved to add it to my personal stash and try again.  This time I used black and white polka dot ribbon, which hid itself nicely underneath the pink. 

So what, you may ask, is up with that last necklace-less outfit?  I just liked it.  The sweater is a favorite of mine, even if its cowl neckline isn't necklace-friendly.  It has a subtly 1950s look about it, which I enhanced with the colorful polka dot skirt and matchy black and white polka dot clutch and belt.  All it needs is a cute little hat!
