We are attending a family wedding in late April, and this will be the first time I’ll dress Robin in smart wear (well, smart casual). I’d purchased a cute blue/yellow shirt from a charity shop a couple of months ago, and managed to get some coordinating chino trousers from Primark. However, I felt the outfit was missing a little something…
Onto Pinterest I went! After a good gander I realised what the outfit needed was a bow tie!
I had a look on Etsy and generally around the internet, but I couldn’t find one that was right. Then I remembered I had some leftover fabric from the lampshade I made. So back onto Pinterest I went and soon enough I came across this step-by-step guide from Simply Being Mommy.
I did however not use a glue gun, did a tiny bit of sewing and added some elastic instead of a brooch pin. But I did however follow the fabric measurements and how to create the bow. I think it turned out pretty well in the end! Let’s hope Robin doesn’t yank it off on the day, I’ll be sure to update this post with a photo of him when the day comes 🙂
