Let's get started...
- 1/2 yd. of brown flannel
- 1/8 yd. of white ribbing
- Eleven ¼" red buttons
- Seven medium-sized snaps
- Matching thread
- 1 package of mini white rick rack
- A scrap of red-striped fabric to make the Bow Tie
- A 6" x 6" scrap of lightweight fabric for the Trap Door Lining
- If your flannel is very lightweight: a 6" x 6" scrap of very lightweight interfacing
- Matching thread
- Small, very sharp scissors to trim seam allowances
- Optional: Fray Check to prevent the rick rack from raveling
To begin: First, some notes: Different fabrics are used in the tutorial for visual clarity. Just follow the actual steps and you'll have a cute outfit!
Tip: Once the edges of the rick rack for the collar are dry, clip off about ¼" from each end. Fold the rick rack under slightly before you begin basting for a clean edge.
6a. Cut a 4-1/2" x 2-3/4" rectangle of striped fabric on the bias. This will become the Bow.
6b. Cut a 1" x 3" rectangle from the striped fabric. This will become the center tie on the Bow. Iron a sharp crease lengthwise in the middle of the rectangle.
6c. Fold each of the long edges in approximately ¼" to the WRONG side, right up to the edge of the Center crease. Press to achieve a sharp crease.
6d. Using the Center crease as a guide, fold each strap in half lengthwise so that the long folded edges are even with each other and are enclosed in the fold.
6e. Edgestitch the matched folded edges together. If desired, the edge with the center fold on the opposite side can also be topstitched.
9. Pin the short edges of the rectangle together, RIGHT sides together. Stitch the Bow together, EXCEPT for the area between the two yellow dots, which should remain unsewn.
Here's the completed Bow:
13. Tack the Back of the Bow onto Proper Right neckline . CONGRATULATIONS! YOU'RE FINISHED!
