The Bow Tie Project Week Three

Grey, Derby, Moustache Bow Tie

This is a tie for a gentlemen. Or at least someone who fancy’s themselves a gentlemen. Moustaches and derbys galore. I wish that this fabric didn’t have a pattern on it because it is such a nice grey color.

This is a round point tie. I didn’t have my rounding game very well figured out, so the edges are less perfect. But I am learning. One thing I need to figure out is how to work with patterns so that they are right side up on all sides.

I noticed while sewing this one that my machine is running a little rougher, so it might be time to do some sewing machine maintenance. Hopefully it is nothing major.

BOW TIE FACT:

A collector of neck ties is known as a grabatologists.

How can you help?

Do you also love bow ties? No one needs 52 bow ties, so I was thinking I could share the making of them with others. If you want a bow tie, you just need to buy the fabric, pay for shipping, and I will add you to the list. Shoot me an email so we can set it up. I will need to know what size your neck is.

Since I also want to gain some bow ties from this experience I will be only opening up twenty-six of the fifty-two ties for people. So get in now or miss out. Fill out the form

Wish me luck and check back every week for the newest bowtie.
