5 Minute No Sew DIY Easter Bowtie for your Pet

28 Mar Posted by in D.I.Y | 5 comments

You all know I love a good DIY project, and when it takes less then 5 minutes and requires no sewing (for my mom who is not so handy with a needle and thread) it’s just an added bonus!

So for Easter this year my mom helped me whip up some quick DIY Bowties that I can wear when all my family comes to visit on Sunday. They’re so fun and easy to make that I can’t even decide which one to wear!

What you need:

  • Scissors or Rotary cutter
  • Ruler
  • Fabric
  • Iron (optional)

Step 1: Cut a long rectangular piece of fabric (Mom cut mine 5″ x 19″ to make my small bow tie). The longer and wider you make your rectangle the bigger your bow tie will be. You will also want to cut a thinner strip of fabric, mine was 2″ x 19″, to be used later.

Step 2: Using your large rectangular piece of fabric fold in the edges. You can use an iron to crease the folds if need be.

Step 3: Next fold your ends towards the center so that they just overlap where the center mark would be.

Step 4: Fold the entire piece of fabric in half.

Step 5: With the front of your bowtie facing you, crease it into 3 even pleats. Then place a clothespin on it to hold it in place while you move to the next step.

    You are so very handsome Ammo.

    Love the idea and will be making one for my little boy, Smokey. I vote for the green one because green is the new color for spring and because the yellow one is a little big and takes away from your handsomeness.

      Oh fun! I hope you’ll share a picture of your bowtie on my Facebook page!

    ADORABLE! My kids were talking about you at breakfast and wondering how you liked your egg hunt?

      Oh yes, I had a blast on my egg hunt. Mom promised she will hide more for me to find on Easter Day!
