Woodgrain & Cowboys Bow-Ties

Woodgrain and Cowboys bow ties by Jay Thomson Here are a couple of bow ties I made for myself today (my first ones). They’re insanely easy to make… well, except for turning them inside out. These were made out of some cotton print fabric I had lying around, but I intend to design my own unique prints (from my drawings and artwork) and print them on Spoonflower.com in the future.

Since I made these for my own use, I just made them the correct size for my neck, but they could easily be made adjustable for other necks. The hardware is pretty difficult to find online, but I found a few sources for it.

The print for the Cowboys reversible bow tie is a little too big for a bow tie, but it sure is a fun pattern. It reminds me of the bedspread I never had when I was a kid. When tied correctly, the knot is a different color than the bow itself, and it can be tied with either the blue or the yellow side showing.

This is probably the start of a new obsession, since they’re so easy to make and they require so little fabric (I figured out that I can fit at least six ties on a single yard of Spoonflower fabric). So look for more of these in the future.
