I happened across the bowtie pattern here and decided I needed an excuse to add some dapper to my life. So I made six of these for my pub crawl/scavenger hunt team to wear last weekend. These are super simple to make and so fun to wear.
I highly recommend using the string method for turning the points.
I was going for cheap so I used a textured faux silk polyester fabric. It worked out really well and I didn’t have a problem with fraying. I didn’t have time to get the sliders (but I did find a place online that sold them) so I just used velcro at the back. The bonus of using velcro is that you only ever have to tie it once.
