Happy almost New Year! I wanted to share my last sewing project of 2012 with you today. I already shared Lola's corduroy dress here, but I couldn't resist making a couple of bow ties for Wyatt and Weston to match.
I used Christie's tutorial, which I also used for wedding bow ties here. It's a great tutorial and I love the finished size (not too big, but not too small), so I'm sure it won't be the last time I use it.
I love the texture of the corduroy for a bow tie. Extra hipster. I also used a layer of fusible fleece, which makes them perfectly soft but still hold their shape.
What little boys wouldn't be thrilled to match their little sister?
Okay, I can't say that the boys don't want to rip the ties off as soon as they are allowed (my fault - I should have made the neckstrap slightly longer), but the cute factor definitely makes up for any bribery that I have to use :).
