Spring Bow Tie

I've been wanting to make my son a tie for quite a while now. I've seen a few patterns, but haven't committed to anything yet. Now that Easter is almost here, I thought what better accessory is there than a tie (for boys anyway). And since he's loves the Doctor, I made it a bow tie, because after all, "bow ties are cool."

I found this quick and easy tutorial over at A Lemon Squeezy Home last night while searching for bow tie tutorials. I love that you don't have to tie it each time you wear it and a new neck piece can be easily installed when his neck grows.

Aren't polka dots fun?

I was hoping to make a bow tie to go with his striped Easter shirt, but didn't have any fabric I thought went really well. I have some solid light pink and dark pink fabric, but I'm thinking it needs a green. Instead, I whipped out some polka dot scraps so he'd have a bow tie to wear tonight while we watched our favorite show.
