My Mother-In-Law brought back this fabric from Jamaica and wanted me to create dresses for all the Granddaughters. (Tutorial HERE.) I knew I would have extra so I proposed Bow-Ties for the boys. Who would say no right!
Then I folded them in thirds like so. (Pictured is the back.)
Then I folded them in half, with right sides facing, and sewed a straight stitch at the tips.
Flipped them right side out.
I had been saving the scraps from the Mu-Mu's I made for the girls. I rolled up some and tied them around the middle of the loops. I just shoved the ends back under the knot with a pencil.
Then I measured some elastic. My son is the oldest, so I assumed he would have the biggest neck...
Then I threaded it under the knot.
I doubled knotted the ends and slid the knot under the... bigget knot? lol
Isn't he handsome! I love my Tyton.
Here are all the Grandkids with Grandma and Papa Herbert in their things I made! It's a little crazy in this house with 8 kids under 6!!
