Description

I’m planning on making bowties for my husband-to-be and his groomsmen to wear at the wedding and this was my “trial run”

This tutorial for turning perfect points really helped make “perfect” points.

I also decided to cut my fusible interfacing WITHOUT the seam allowance. This helped a lot because:
1) the fusible interfacing line acted as my guideline on where to sew!
2) it cut down on the bulk and ease of turning the loop of the neck part

Material Notes

- 1/2 yard quilting cotton (this was enough for two bow ties, I messed up the first attempt!)
- heaviest weight fusible interfacing (bought at Steinlauf and Stoller’s in NYC)
- 7/8" sliders
