I made seven bowties for my partner, who hasn’t worn them one time. I’m not the type to force something new on someone. They were originally a love gift on one of our anniversaries. So now, many years later, I am gifting them to a dear friend who I know will rock them well. She is classy and quirky so I can’t wait to see what kind of ensembles she will come up with.
It was a bit intimidating to make at first. I mean I was backing out of the idea consciously while looking at the instructions. However, I pushed through and made the damn things. Excuse my language.
I went to the fabric store and picked out random colored prints. Just things I thought would bring a pop of color to anything. So here I go with seven colorful prints, interfacing, and bow tie notion sets to complete. Anxiously I was on my way home physically ready to start this love project. Mentally not quite there yet.
So after a few days of starting and stopping I was finally finished. They turned out great for a novice. you can only see the hand-stitching on the back of the bow.
I was so thrilled to be done and to have finished it. Sometimes giving up is the easier route. Nothing gets accomplished that way though. Is there something you accomplished that was tough to get through? How did you feel after?
Until next time 🙂
