Bow Tie Tutorial
Do You have something to wear for, Birthday or Valentine's party? Adjust the bow pattern smaller or larger depending on the size you need. Lets start :):

3 pieces – the Bow tie, the knot in the middle, and (rubber) band that goes around the neck.

1 x Bow Tie: 12.5cm x 37.5cm
1 x Knot: 9cm x 7.5cm
2 x Band: 54cm x 4cm (Cut this piece to a point at one end) OR THE RUBBER BAND

For Children:
1 x Bow Tie: 7,5 inch  x 10.5 inch
1 x Knot: 2,5 inch x 2 inch
2 x Band: 18 inch x 2inch (Cut this piece to a point at one end) OR THE RUBBER BAND

1. Pin the bow pieces in place.

2. Cut out your Bow tie pattern pieces.

3. Next, fold the bow fabric in half (longways) right sides together and sew a seam along the edge.

4. Flip the fabric right side out, and move the seam to the middle
5. Fold the bow fabric in half again, seam side out, and sew another seam along the edge
6. Flip around again, so the seam is on the inside.
7. KNOT. Take the fabric, knot piece,  and sew right sides together

8. Pick up your needle, thread it with two strands of embroidery cotton and (Ladder) stitch both knot sides ends until the knot is close.

9. Adjust the knot around the bow tie and hand stitch to secure.

I like to use an elastic band for a quick, fun, and easy fit. :)
Lets sew!
Today! :)
