DIY // Giant Bow Tie

Hi friends! Today's diy is a super cute and easy way to spice up your whole wardrobe! yes, I went there, your WHOLE wardrobe! Ready, Set GO!
*the pins are for perfectionists, you'll notice I didn't use them! I used an iron instead!
One: Start by cutting out these three pieces of fabric!
Two: Lets make the bow! Fold both pieces hot dog style and sew the top. If you are using a patterned fabric sew right sides together
Three: Flip inside out and sew the two ends together to make a loop. Flip right side out and place the seam in the middle. 
 Four: Slip the smaller loop around the big one, adjust as you go, to make a nice giant bow!
Five: Lets make the tie. Fold it hot dog style and iron it or pin it. For the extra feminine touch, cut the ends so they make a point and is not so blunt. Sew the top and points right sides together making sure to leave a little opening. Turn it right side out and sew a blind stitch to close it up and conceal it nicely!
 Six: Insert the ties criss cross into the small loop of the bow. You can adjust the size to your liking!
And voila, a pretty giant bow that can make a simple tee into a fabulously cute one! 
Happy Crafting!
