Thank Your Hairdresser

Hi everyone,

Here is our first lady sporting the world's most famous bangs.  Does this look easy to achieve?  Well, it's not!  I have been working on my March angel and she has bangs too...Fortunately for the little angel when hers don't work out I can cut them out and start over.

In my first pass I used 6 strands of floss for the turkey work - which meant 12 with the loop and they stood STRAIGHT UP - not the look I wanted :(

So I cut the thread down to 4 strands and her bangs lay flatter- they may not be even but they're flatter.

At least Michelle Obama doesn't wear a headband- that's so Hillary...

Happy Stitching,
