how to make a quick bow tie for your little man. Great DIY cheater sewing tutorial perfect for Valentine's Day or costumes.
body of the bow.
Start with a 5×5 scrap of fabric (the size is approximate you can adjust it to your personal taste). We thought this size was cute on a one year old.
Fold and iron it in half.
Sew around the three edges leaving a small gap in the middle of the long edge.
Flip right side out.
Iron. (You can stitch closed the hole if you want but we didn’t)
loop of the bow tie.
Cut a strip of fabric about 1 1/2 -2 inches by 5 inches.
Fold and iron in half length-wise.
Sew around the long edge.
Flip right sided out.
Tuck one unfinished edge of the strip in and then stuff the other edge into the opening so you have a loop.
Hand stitch to secure.
Next stuff the bow into the loop.
Add a safety pin and you’re good to go.
You can stitch everything in place if you’re an overachiever but we just stopped there :)
You can use the same technique to make a bigger man’s pin on bow tie just tweak the size a little to your liking.
