Making Stuff: Bow Ties

by This is Carrie on May 3, 2011

This year I made the boys bow ties for Easter.  I couldn’t think of a better companion for their gingham shirts.  And after making my first practice tie, I realized how fun and easy they are.

Surprisingly, Todd decided he wanted one too.  I guess no one likes to be left out of the fun.

Boys Bow Tie Pattern: homemade (will post pattern later this week)

There is nothing better than little boys in boy ties. I made one for mine this year too, along with seersucker shorts. It kills me:

ohh- I can’t wait for the boys pattern- my 5 year old just got invited to a fancy birthday party- and needs to dress semi- formal, I think a bow tie would be perfect!

My brother suggested I might like this blog. He used
to be entirely right. This put up truly made my day.
You can not consider just how so much time I had spent for this info!
