My First Pattern!!!!

I'm am really excited to unveil something I've been perfecting for a while.  It's my very first pattern for purchase.  I wanted to do something boy-oriented with a fun vintage twist.  May I introduce the Retro Pointed Bowtie.

It's funky, fun, and classic all in one.

The bowtie is a real bowtie that you tie, but it has an easy closure so it can be tied first and then put on your child.  (Rex would never hold still long enough for me to tie one on him.)

The pattern and tutorial is now listed in my etsy shop, Roar. It's very simple to follow and has lots of pictures to explain. It's a great project for beginner-level sewing. You get two different sizes (2yrs-6yrs and 7yrs-12yrs). You can make one in about 15-20 minutes. You could even make a bunch for Christmas presents.

There's no school like the old school.

My sister and I had some fun dressing the boys all up for this photo shoot.  I had a lot of fun editing the pictures to give them a vintage look.  But, in case you're interested, here's how it really went down.  Turns out my sister's kids are perfect.  Mine are.....



That's all for today.  You'll find the Retro Pointed Bowtie pattern HERE.

Thanks for reading!
