fabric (you only need about 8 inches per bow tie but I got a half yard just in case)
ribbon (optional..you will see why later)
(minus scissors and ruler..oops!)
Step 1: Cut your fabric approximately 8 x 5 inches ( it doesn't have to be exact)
Step 2: Flip you fabric over so that the design is down. Fold up the bottom short side to the center of the fabric and glue with a small dot of hot glue on each corner. Do the same for the other short side. This is what it should look like when this step is done.
Step 4: Flip the fabric over and pinch the fabric in the middle to make the bow shape
Step 5: take a piece of ribbon about 2 inches long and glue around the middle of the bow tie
Step 6: Flip the tie over and glue on the alligator clip
This is the finished product. I decided I didn't like the ribbon for the center so I cute a strip of fabric about 2 inches long and 1 inch wide and glued them just like I did with the bow tie fabric and then glued it around the ribbon..make sense?
Here is what it looked like!
Here it is on FIs shirt:)
I took the Bowie and boys outfits over to the ring bearers house to have them try them on. And they were ADORABLE!! My girlfriend got pictures on her camera but I didn't:( I cant wait to see them on the big day!
