A bow tie is a popular little ditty these days, so what would be better than a gift of three handmade bow ties? I found a template for bow ties from Miss Martha, scaled the pattern with Illustrator, printed it out and started sewing.
I choose fabrics that would be versatile and can be worn for many occasions. Handmade a few tags, with love from Katey, and packaged the finished product up in what I thought was ‘manly’ wrapping.
Oh, and did I mention that I am really good at tying a bow tie now? Practice makes perfect on a paper towel roll. Be classy and never buy a clip-on. Love Katey.
*Note: This pattern fits best a 15.5 neck size. Adjust pattern accordingly for larger neck size.
