Hello my amazing blog family and visitors,I Hope you are doing well?If you have been following me and ardent reader of my blog,you would have noticed a few things I like when it comes to sewing,fashion,accessories.

For those that did not know,I have a thing for,Lace trims, pearls,butterflies,Bows, Fur,  Ribbons,Feathers,Buttons,Frills and Embellishments.Any of the above have to be in my dress or outfit unless I am going for a plain look which is rare.

Today I want to show you how I make my bow accessories,I am aware there are different ways to make them,whichever way you learn or choose to do it does not matter as long as you make a beautiful bow at the end.

However these 2 methods work for me every time.It will be shown in the video.

Meanwhile see photos of them below: 

Fold fabric into two and cut into a rectangle or Square

Sew/Stitch round the corners leaving a small hole about half to one inch see arrow below

 Turn the fabric inside out,through the tiny hole,do same for the Centre Knot

Make pleats on the bow tie and put it through the centre with hand stitch.


Kindly See video below:

This is a simple Bow definitely different from the one the men wear with their suits.The method of how they are made is a bit different depending on the type of look your Man is going for and the bow tie is usually smaller.This bow can be for hair,brooch or hat ,Shoe accessory.

Thanks for Passing by and I am wishing you a fabulous week.😘
