I love Liberty fabric, I may gripe and moan about the inflated cost but deep down, in my heart of hearts I love Liberty Fabric! My favourite designs will always be the Vintage 1930s patterns however; they bring out more and more each year and parts of their new season have sold out three times over already!
I am a regular reader of their Blog and this Bow Tie Tutorial popped up a couple days ago, and I just had to share it! It includes a free Pattern, and looks amazing made from any of their Fabrics… what an amazing gift it would make!
More and more projects for men seem to be popping up at the moment (both to make themselves and to make for ’em), which is so lovely. I definitely have my eye on this for future gift giving!!
Ever wanted to make a bow tie for those special occasions? Or maybe you like to wear them to the office, like a certain Mr Louis Matthewman? We have chosen to use one of our new prints from theSpring/Summer 2014 Liberty Art fabrics collection called Queue for the Zoo, which we think is not only an awesome print, but would also make a great conversational accessories for your wardrobe. This Liberty print is designed by the illustrator and children’s author OK David, find out more about the inspiration behind this print here.

The Tutorial takes you through cutting out and sewing up the Bow Tie- there’s even a handy tip on sewing curves!, with distinctive Liberty flair. Everything seems just so much more luxurious when these guys are involved, doesn’t it? Even the PDF Pattern is pretty…
