When life gives me lemons…. I remind myself how much I love lemonade, seriously it’s an addiction. Know what else I love
Put it this way, when life gives me scraps, I make bows.
When we were visiting Mr. Smith’s Aunt she kindly gave me a ton of amazing (adorable, wonderful, darling, “OMG I need this in my life!”) scrap material
One stipulation… I had to make bow ties for her new yorkie…
I got started right away
Just use the same template found on this blog post for my felt hair bows and cut two pieces of the bow loop part of the template.
Sew the two pieces together (still with outsides facing towards one another)
Then turn the piece right side out and flatten your seams. If needed (or wanted) you can iron it to get the seams to cooperate, I didn’t because the bows tend to be a little fluffier if you don’t flatten the seams with an iron.
As a tip I had to use a pencil or sometimes a crochet hook to turn the pieces.
(Optional if you plan on attaching it to a collar) Sew a small strip of elastic on top of the center piece
