In 2012, a dear friend asked if I would sew a dozen bow ties for a New Year’s celebration. Challenge was accepted and I have never looked back, many scores of ties later. What started out just as an opportunity to sew something new and hack a pattern has really evolved into a unique way to engage with people and create special ties for them. While my hubs definitely flaunts the largest (and endless) bow tie collection, many of course, created to match moi, I thought I would share some snapshots of others I have created. It’s a mish-mash of photos at various stages in the process and if you look closely an evolution too. I love engaging with folkx to create the perfect set of bespoke bow ties via my Etsy shop. (Yes it is a bit bare beyond bow ties but such is life.)
I managed to not have a photo of the final party collection but this is a great example of the importance of scale in selecting a fabric print.
