Baby Bow Tie

August 6, 2013

I am so excited to share this craft with you! I have two good friends having baby boys so I did what any crafter these days would do when I learned that there would be little fellas coming into this world soon: Pinterest searched “baby boy crafts.”

I came up with some adorable ideas, but my favorite were these little bow ties that clip to onesies. How handsome!

  • Fabric
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun

Step 1: Cut two pieces of fabric, the larger one should be 7×5″ and the smaller one should be 2.25×2.25″.

Steps 2-3: Take the larger piece and flip it over. Then fold it into thirds lengthwise.

Step 4: Take each end and fold them in so they meet in the middle.

Step 5: Flip the folded piece of fabric over and pinch it in half, as shown. Using your hot glue gun, put a drop of glue in the crease so that the fold stays put.

Step 6: Flip it over again and fold the top and bottom edges in the opposite direction of the fold in Step 5, as shown. Glue in place.

Step 7: Next, take the smaller piece of fabric and fold it into thirds, then wrap it around the bow and glue it together in the back. Cut off any excess fabric.

Step 8: Take a piece of velcroe or a clip found at any craft store and insert into the back to clip onto the onesies. This adorable bow ties can also be used as hair bows for little girls with the same clip.

I bought a pack of newborn onesies from Target and clipped them on to each to mail to my friend. Then put the outfit and bow ties in my BirchBox from last month to mail to her.


And now meet Mr. Kolby donning one of the bow ties. My heart melts!
