DIY Bowties


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.  

PS.  Make sure you enter to win a pair of monogrammed earrings here.
