Bow Tie

So making girly things has sure been fun!

However, there's one problem...I have two boys

I though of something cute and simple....bow ties! I used the tutorial on how to make a fabric bow from Kitty Cats and Airplanes that I used here. Instead of ribbon, I sewed together a piece of fabric and turned it  inside out. I folded it over in back and hot glued it. 

I pinched the front and hot glued it.

Then I wrapped another piece around it for the center of the bow.

 To clip it on, I glued a hair clip to the back.

Then I just clipped it to Leo's dress shirt...and Ta-da! He's so cute. :)

  2. Thanks, Katie. A hair clip was all I had...but it ended up working so well!

  3. I love this take on the bow! He looks super cute in it. Or should I say super handsome?

  4. Thanks, Amie! The bow has so many uses! :)
