  • How to make a bow tie. Classy Bow Ties - Step 1
    Step 1

    First you'll need a bow tie template.. it should look sort of like this.. you can download them from various sites. i got this one from Google images.

    you'll need to cut 2 of these

  • Step 2

    place these two pieces right sides together and sew most of the way around, leaving a 2" gap. iron it flat and turn it out the right way.

  • Step 3

    hand sew the gap closed, and fold it.

    how to fold:
    fold it in half and iron it. fold it flat again, bring the centre back lines into the fold lines and sew.

  • Step 4

    cut a small rectangle of matching fabric, and fold the raw edges into the middle and iron. wrap this around where you've sewn in the center of the bow tie and sew

  • Step 5

    now cut a bigger rectangle that will reach comfortably around your neck, thats about 2 inches thick. fold it in half and sew down the length

  • Step 6

    sew one end of this rectangle to the back of the bow tie, then sew a snap fastener onto that. sew the other half of the snap fastener to the other end of that rectangle.

  • Step 7

    YAY! you're done!!
