Nine Eclectic Bow Ties cut & sew pattern

I designed these ties a few weeks ago as a cut & sew pattern (ie, all 9 ties appear on one yard of cotton sateen fabric). I’ve received the fabric and made all nine of the bow ties. Here’s what they look like finished:

I didn’t originally intend to sell this design, so I made it in my size only (ie, non-adjustable). If your neck size is 15 ½″ or so, you can buy this design now.

Because I’ve received a lot of requests, I will be re-designing the pattern to make the bow ties adjustable. Watch this space for details on that project.

Basic sewing instructions are included right on the fabric. Here’s what the fabric looks like when you buy it:

I designed this for one yard of Spoonflower’s cotton sateen fabric, which is 56″ wide. A yard of this will cost you $27 + about $3 shipping. You could also order it on the cotton silk, but that fabric is only 40″ wide. If you choose to do that, you’ll only get six ties, starting from the left.

  1. I love the variety in your fabric. What a terrific idea.

  2. Awesome! What a great idea, did you sell these? The flamingos on black is definately my favourite (-:

    Thanks! I don’t sell the finished ties, but you can buy the fabric and make them yourself at the Spoonflower link in the post. It’s really easy… even a beginner can do it!
