So this morning, I woke up and once again, I needed a black bow tie. I couldn't really settle for the leopard print one [yet again] considering the fact that I was wearing a leopard print blouse [and I didn't want to look like an actual leopard] AND I STILL couldnae find my old faithful black one and soooo I simply took matters into my own hands and made my own. Luckily, I had a spare bit of soft leather material hanging around my house and so I let my creative juices flow all over it.
I realise now that the above sentence sounds a bit minging but hopefully no one has a mind as filthy as mine.
ANYHOO, without further ado, here is how I made my bow tie...
You will need:
Step 1: Find any old material in the colour you wish your bow tie to be. Cut TWO strips [One fat and one skinny]
Step 2: Fold over fat strip into a rectangle. Slip your ribbon on there and tie the skinny strip around both the rectangle and the ribbon. Like so....
Step 3: Cut off any excess material and make silly faces with your new bow tie/moustache...
OR alternatively, you could just be a grown up and wear it but erm yeah...
The whole process honestly takes like 2 minutes, so get some old material and get creative!!
wore it with a black blazer with gold buttons. keeping it simple because too many colours spoil the broth or something..
I am a leopard print fiend. Is it too much? tell me the truth!!
