It can be difficult to sew a gift for someone if you aren’t sure about their size, but this sweet little bow tie headband is the right size for everyone! The classic men’s wear bow tie is sewn in one piece with a headband. I’ve added some fold over elastic to the back, and since it is tied once the headband is completed, this accessory will fit everyone from babies to adults.
The headband comes together very quickly, approximately 30 minutes from start to finish, and even faster if you do the finishing with a glue gun rather than with hand stitching. The headband is a great scrap buster too, it uses less than a 1/4″ and is a fun way to use up novelty or special prints.
The bow tie is contoured for the best shape; no rectangles here! I’ve created full size printable pattern pieces for you as well as a complete photo tutorial. Click here for your free pattern.
