What materials did you use? 36" length of cotton quilting cloth.

What are you most proud of? I literally had one 5" square of cloth (in 2 triangles) plus a two-foot strip of bias tape left over.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Test the length of the ties before you start cutting! I thought I had more than enough length, but it takes more to tie a bow than one might think, and I ended up just squeaking by. Also, I used quilting clips instead of pins to hold the bias tape onto the cloth. It was *so* much easier, very stable, and the clips do not deform the tape and cloth the way pinning sometimes can.
