It seems like it is so much easier to do sewing for my granddaughters than for my grandsons. So, this year for Easter, I decided to make my grandsons bow ties! I found a cute, easy pattern on House of Ideas. Seriously, I whipped these up in one short afternoon! Of course, the fun part is finding the fabric to make them out of. I was able to get 3 ties out of 1 fat quarter. I didn't realize that would happen, so of course I purchased way too much fabric! Oh well!
Walmart has some adorable fat quarters to choose from that are only under $1.00! That makes these ties pretty reasonable. Add your thread and a package of Velcro and you are ready to go.
When I was picking out fabric, I kept scrunching it into a bow shape to get the idea of how it would look as a tie. It was fun. No wonder I now have enough fabric for 10 more ties!
*One tip, when you are cutting our your ties, be sure of the direction of the fabric. I kept struggling with the shark fabric to get those sharks swimming in the right direction. It isn't really that hard, you just need to be mindful.
So, if you are looking for something quick, simple and adorable to make for your grandsons, (or sons) I hope you like this idea!
You don't sew? Target carries some cute bow ties on their site!
