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.
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
