I actually made these! (Well, with my friend, Kristen's, help.) I look forward to crafting with Kristen on Monday nights while we watch The Bachelor. We used this tutorial for the bow ties, with a few adjustments. Instead of the 2x2 piece of fabric to go around the tie, we used a 2x4. The original pattern also used a safety pin to attach the tie to the shirt. Have you ever tried to safety pin a bow tie to a little guy's shirt? It's basically like trying to leash a wild gorilla. Not.going.to.happen. So I suggest adding a strap and some velcro.
