Description

This is the Bowtie from Mollie Makes Issue 33...my daughter wants to give some as Christmas presents so this is the "practice" one- used a slacks hook instead of the Velcro suggested in the tutorial.

This took about 45 minutes, getting the others done should go a bit quicker ...it will be a bowtie assembly line:)

Update 12/20/13..Bowtie assembly underway, Becca and I made about 12 last night...she has a lot of friends...more to come
Update 12/24...assembly line continues...we have a number of duplicates but here's two of my favorites from the new batch, blue bicycles and Parisian text.

True

I just love this...what a cute idea! You are on a roll:-)

Mymble

Thanks True .....8 days until...right? Mollie Makes is such a fun magazine- but I don't always find the projects practical...s glad I had this though when Rebecca came home asking for bowties:)

Cute. Bowties always seemed a little old-fashioned to me, but the fabric choice really gives it a modern feel. It's an interesting trend.

Joke

I can just picture my cats wearing one of these innocent

Mymble

sew_what Yup..as The Doctor said...."Bowties are cool!"

Mymble

Joke Well there ya go...you'd have a very smart looking cat;)))))

My h.s physics teacher wore one everyday and he was the coolest geek ever. I have fond memories of them. And I totured my son when he was little by making him wear them at Christmas time. He still hasn't forgiven me!

Mymble

Terryt1955 Hmmm...think my H.S. Physics teacher shopped at the same store...yup bowties, or else just a rumpled "I've been up all night computing fiendishly difficult formulas" look...that was a popular science geek look as well:) I too tortured my son that way...isn't that in the Mom Handbook somewhere???

Terryt1955

Yes and don't forget the fancy shorts with suspenders and pristine white knee socks to match the per pan collared shirt! Oh, the good old days!
You are younger than me. None of my h.s. teachers would have dared showed up with the rumpled look. That wasn't until college!

Mymble

1958...and the physics teacger eoukd gave been junior year...1975...yes...everything was definitely in "mid-unraveling" then....the groovy english teacher wore a fringed leather jacket.

Mymble

Clearly the phone and its wicked minion Auto correct does not wish me to post

Joke

These are so cute. Love the grey one with the triangles (is that from the washi line??); it looks really funky!

Joke

I bet my cats would love a bird one; even though they're inside cats and don't really understand what a bird is, but they sure do look good!! ;)

These are so cute. I can picture my 9 brothers when we were little all dressed up in their little suits and bowties for Christmas dinner. I have always love bowties and I think this is the reason. Great variety of fabric and the flannel one is just to cute.

Charlie

These ARE cute! Love the updated fabric choices although that plaid one does remind me of my physics teacher too! He was also the wrestling coach and the aviation class teacher. This was in 1969 or so. Wow, it must be a trait of geekness. Maybe there's a new trend starting Mymble, since your daughter asked for them. you'll have to report back and let us know how they were received.

Terryt1955

You've made a parcel of goodies here. I want to see a picture of the models wearing them! One year I made Pendleton ties for the men in the family and I swear the longest time spent was turning them right side out!

Mymble

Joke Yes- Washi Tape:)...such a fun line!

Mymble

Joke OH yes, or sardines;)))))....I'd put one on Andy but he had surgery for a paw...we found out he has an extra digit and the nail had grown in .... he's out of sorts right now and already wearing a plastic cone to keep him from licking the surgery site...so I'm not sure how he will take to me putting anything around his neck for a while...poor baby.

Mymble

Quilt455 Thanks- I do love them...not for every guy but some just wear bowties perfectly:)....and of course the 11th Doctor wore them to perfection...must make a tardis bowtie in honor of him!

Mymble

Charlie Thanks- actually they are on trend..at least in the artsy world my daughter inhabits- Philly and New York...whether they will get more popular remains to be seen- have a friend who says they are a big deal in Atlanta among the young crowd- who knew???

Mymble

Terryt1955 Oooh- ties- did one with a traditional pattern and what work- all the fiddly hand sewing-and the uber careful ironing... I actually have a new pattern for some skinny ties but need some quiet time to work on them- as I recall the cutting has to be perfect and everything after that as well- such a small bit of fabric and any bit of mismeasurement really shows up...I will ask Becca to get some pics of her buddies wearing them:)

Charlie

Mymble, you just can't project a 'trend'. Wonder if Boston will get on the tie-wagon any time soon. I like the tardis idea for the Dr. Looking forward to the pics.

Mymble

Charlie too true and it can change so fast...need to think hard for the tardis one:)...of coursr the easy way would be order some tardis fabric from spoonflower...but I will see what I can come up with first...we're on our way up to Boston several times in Feb. by the way...just there in November..loved it!

HawkFan

These are all fantastic. What a great choice of fabrics!

Charlie

Mymble, I am in Norwell. It might be fun to meet when you get up this way.My hubby is a big fan of Dr. Who, didn't know there was a tardis fabric. Blessings on the season.
