Bow tie



I made the bow tie in a bigger version, cause I like it also for in my hair. I was requested to do a DIY Bow tie. So, here it is.


VS♥


What do you need?
Fabric
Triangle ruler
Pencil
Scissors
Iron
bobby pin
hand needle
thread

Let's Start!
1) Draw two pieces; 30 á 35 by 12 cm and 10 by 4 cm, cut 'em out. (Bow tie 17 by 8 cm 10 by 2cm)
 2) Iron the edges 1 cm in.
3) Thread your needle and tie a knot in the end.
4) Fold the fabric in half, mark the middle with the pencil, open it up again. 
 5) Fold both sides 1 cm over the mark for overlap. Now you have a bow shape.
6) Push through the edge with the needle and loop it one more time to secure.
7) Sew one 1 cm wide till the other-side, do not secure.
8) Pull the thread for the perfect bow shape.
9) Round the thread over the center for a few times and secure.
10) wrap the little piece around the bow
11) Push the needle trough the piece, wrap it around for a couple times and secure.
12) Cut the leftover off
13) slip your bobby pin through the piece
14) You're done.


Good luck!
