Once you have the steps down, get crazy with color and patterns. There are custom tags for all of your bow tie gifts!
THE SUPPLY LIST:
– Fabric Scrap, cut into 3 pieces
– Small Ponytail Holder
– Hot Glue Gun & Scissors
– Tag & Ribbon with Bag for Gifting
STEP 1 | Cut 3 pieces of fabric:
2 – 5” x 7”
1 – 1.5” x 4”
On the 2 large pieces: Glue the long sides onto each other. Overlap one piece more than the other for two rectangles, one with a slightly smaller width than the other.
STEP 2 | On the 2 large pieces, glue the short sides onto each other. Overlap one piece more than the other for two rectangles, one with a slightly smaller length than the other.
STEP 3 | On the 1 smallest piece: Glue the long ends onto each other, similar to how you did it on the first large piece.
STEP 4 | Stack your larger pieces, smaller rectangle on top. It is starting to look like a bow tie now. Wrap with smallest piece under as the center band and lay ponytail holder across the stacked pieces.
STEP 5 | Snip the ends of the smallest center piece so they just slightly overlap and glue, being careful not to glue the ponytail holder. Fluff and shape to be the perfect bow tie!
STEP 6 | Slide collar through the ponytail holder so your pooch can proudly wear their new festive bow tie – or wrap for gifting.
To gift, slide into a bag (we used clear), and tie off with a tag and ribbon.
