So, I love art. I also love fashion. Why shouldn’t the two be intertwined?!
Every Friday at my job, we all switch from regular ties to bowties. It’s bowtie Friday! This is the first bowtie I’ve ever made and I love it to itty bitty pieces!
I made it by taking a pair of old denim blue jeans (the pair my sister wore when she was in the car accident which shattered her spine) and sewed it into the shape I wanted (a big ol’ rectangle). Then I added acrylic paint with a stencil brush through various stencils (a checkerboard pattern and alphabet stencil) and added hot pink acrylic with the end of a food saver roll. Finally, I sewed the center together to give that familiar shape and wrapped an old zipper around the whole thing! It’s very funky, very 80’s and very me! See you soon, Imps!
