Kelly from Restitch Me shares a series of posts on her blog showing how to customize Martha Stewart’s DIY bow tie pattern. Her first post shows how to size it up to fit a larger neck. Her second post shows how to alter the pattern to create some fun variations - one with a more retro shape, and one that’s a skinny bow tie. In her third post in the series, she shows how to cut it from two fabrics to make it reversible, including a variation that makes the knot in the middle a different fabric than the bow itself. How cool is that! Go to the resizing tutorial. Go to the shaping variations. Go to the reversible variation.
