Tutorial Tuesday: Bowtie
I’ve been seeing a lot of bows lately in my fashion-site browsing, so I thought I’d jump on that bandwagon and make my own. Digging deep into my scrap pile I came up with this lovely polka-dotted fabric left over from a long-ago reconstructed shirt. So I guess that technically makes this a recycling project. You could make it with salvaged fabric or a bit of new–it really doesn’t take much. If you’re better at hand-sewing than I am (see my messy stitches below), you could even do this entirely by hand, though I used a sewing machine. It’s a quick, fun little project and tomorrow I’ll show you various ways to wear your new creation.
Fabric (an 11″ by 5″ piece and a 2″ by 5″ piece)
Sewing machine (optional)
7. Add a pinback and hand-sew or glue it in place.
8. You’re done!
Tune in tomorrow when I take this baby for a spin!
