DIY: Bowties

    |

Being that this is a holiday week, this week's DIY project is quick, fun and easy. Bowties! This took about 20 mins and I made 2. One in quilted leather and one in denim, both from my scraps stash. 
Supplies:
1/4 yard of fabric or any scraps or old articles of clothing
chalk
glue gun
pin back

  • Cut out a 6 inch by 3 1/2 inch piece of fabric.
  • Draw a vertical line and horizontal line on the wrong side of the fabric.
  • Place a drop of glue on the right side of the fabric where the lines intersect in the middle.
  • Fold in half lengthwise and press close.
  • Place a drop of glue close to the edge on the vertical line and fold the fabric back. Press down.
  • Continue this on both sides creating an accordion effect.
  • Cut out a 3/4 inch by 2 1/2 inch strip.
  • With the bowtie facing down, place a drop of glue onto the edge of the strip and press down onto the center of the bowtie.
  • Wrap the strip around the center and apply a drop of glue to seal it closed.
