I’ve always wanted to wear a tie or a bow tie like my Dad when he went to fancy events, but never really got the right opportunity. I think it’s the epitome of looking like a dapper gentleman to have something cinched around your neck. I have had rolls of elastic kicking around my sewing box (inherited from my grandma) forever and never really knew what to do with it. Now I’ve discovered I can use scraps to make ingenious little baubles like this bow tie! I pinned it down with a beautiful gold tribal earring that I found in a local second hand store. It’s really amazing the things you can come up with when you’re bored and on a limited budget!
