As much as I love sewing, I sometimes need a break. As promised from the previous post, Blazers and Bow Ties, I have found a great, easy way to make your own bow ties. These can be used for your little guy’s Sunday clothes, baby shower gifts, hair accessories, or even simply attached to a cute sweater.
Here’s what you will need:
|Cut fabric about 7 inches by 4 inches.|
|Flat iron to keep fabric neatly folded.|
Then, hot glue the fabric in place to maintain the new fold you have created.
Now all you need is to make the center piece. I made mine 2 inches by 6 inches, but found that it was a little too long.
Like you did with the main piece, fold in the sides hot dog style, flat iron, and hot glue.
|Careful not to burn yourself when you press the fabric down, sometimes the heat can burn you through the fabric.
Next, place the end of your center on the back of the main piece and secure with glue.
