Trays of Bow tie pins for each guest.
Sporting these fun and fabulous little bow ties.
Bows in every color for the event
- Fabric of your choosing (we purchased .25 yards of each pattern)
- low temp hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Bar pins for attaching to the back of each bow tie
- Iron and Ironing board
- small bowl with ice and water in case your glue gets too hot and on your fingers. Dip immedietly in ice water.
Cut the fabric in 4.5″ by 9″ rectangle for the main bow tie section. Cut a 2.5″ by 2.5″ piece of material for the bow center. Iron one edge of the bow under slightly and then fold in thirds so each edge is folded under and press slightly. Repeat process for bow tie center fabric.
Fold the ends towards the back of the bow tie (right side up) dab a small about of glue to hold. Flip over pinch the center of the bow and glue the center piece on the back side of the bow tie. Let cool slightly
Hot glue the bar pin to the back of the bow tie. Let cool. Your finished.
When you are making 24 of these it is nice to have extra hands, the hostess, and another friend popped in to help me get these finished up.
