So a little while back I told you about my cousin’s baby Ben. So the Russian Thanksgiving is coming up this Sunday and Ben’s mom, Alesya, asked if I could make baby Ben a bow tie for the occasion. And of course I said yes, below is a picture of the final product.
This was my first REAL sewing project (I’ve made a pillow a few times before), and first time using the machine my mom gifted me. Sadly I didn’t take pictures during the process of making the bow tie, but I found this tutorial on Nature’s Heirloom that was a bit similar. The only differences is I did only 1 layer of the actual bow tie vs. 2, I didn’t sew together the middle of the bow – that was less stitches to bother the baby, and I did an actual fabric band around the next with Velcro (this will allow the bow tie to grow with baby Ben. If you have any other questions on the DIY of this project…message me! PS: Sorry for the bad quality pic, it was taken on my phone.
