i received another request from the mother of my favorite little 3 year old customer. this time she wanted me to do 3 bowties for her son so she could give them to him for Christmas. she asked me to make a red one, a black one, and a polka dot one. the last one i made for him, turned out pretty well, but not as great as i would've liked. so this time i made some changes.
i used the same tutorial as last time, over at Prudent Baby. this time instead of using satin, i used cotton for all of them. a main reason i chose cotton was because i couldn't find any other fabric with a cute polka dot pattern. i like the way they turned out though using the cotton. another change i made was using actual bowtie sliders and clips.
last time was my first time ever making a bowtie, so i didn't really know what i was doing and didn't have the proper hardware. i ended up using velcro for the closure and it wasn't adjustable enough. so, lessons learned i knew what to do this time to make them better! i made the strap longer and bought some bowtie sliders and clips from Etsy. all-in-all, these bowties turned out way better than the last one!
