Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day. I know! This month has zoomed by and now here we are.
Are you going through a mental checklist of things you have and things you may have forgotten?
The Bodysuit Tie
This has to be one of the most brilliant DIY ideas for bow ties I’ve come across yet. Instead of creating a bow tie that offers a closure, this one is designed to snap on to your baby’s bodysuit! You can find the super easy and clear instructions over on One Young Love.
Chubby Bow Tie
I really like the body on these as the bow tie itself isn’t skinny, instead it’s quite substantial. Moms will love that this DIY pattern offers a Velcro closure!
You can find the entire pattern, photos and instructions on A Lemon Squeezy Home.
Recycle a Tie
Don’t have any fabric scraps lying around? Why not use one of your husband’s old ties? Better yet, make them a matching set! This fantastic DIY shows you how to repurpose an old tie and turn it into a Velcro closing bow tie. You can find all the instructions on A Make It and Love It.
The Spiffy Hook and Eye Closure
Prudent Baby has a fantastic tutorial that shows you how to make clip on bow ties (perfect for babies and toddlers ahem). You can view the step-by-step photos and instructions on their blog PrudentBaby.com.
“Turkey – check!”
“Pumpkin – check!”
“Baby’s Thanksgiving outfit – check!”
“Baby’s bow tie – um….”
The accessories get me every, single time too! Sadly, by the time I hit the department store, everything is sold out and I’m stuck. Well mamas, I have some good news. If you happened to forget that blessed bow tie this Thanksgiving, I have 5 DIY solutions that show you how to make your own quite easily.
If you have some thread, scraps of fabric (even an old tie or some ribbon would work!) and a sewing machine you should be good to go! Many of these can be made without a sewing machine as well, if you prefer to sew them by hand.
