I’m not sure why, but I have been loving bow ties lately. I just can’t get enough.
They are so darn cute, I can’t stand it.
I have seen so many bow tie tutorials with these amazing fabrics, and especially the bow tie/tie appliquéd shirts and onesies. I really love them, but I just don’t have the budget to buy cute fabric all the time.
Since crocheting is SO much cheaper, I thought I’d try a little experiment…
I added a crochet bow tie to a couple plain t-shirts.
I am still trying to figure out what I think about them.
These shirts didn’t quite fit the vision I had in my head, but they aren’t terrible.
I love yellow, even for boys, but I am not a huge fan of how this yellow/navy bow tie looks.
Too much like a bumble bee.
I like this blue one a lot better, but I still am wondering if these bow ties look too much like girly bows instead?
I also tried this out on a onesie I had laying around and for some reason I think it looks better than the toddler t-shirts do. I also love the colors I chose for this one, the teal/yellow are so bright and fun.
I don’t know, I need some time to figure out if I will let Ande out of the house in one of these.
I really love the idea of it…
What do you think? Do they look like enough like bow ties?
