DIY Bow Tie Tutorial: Make your own bow ties

Step 2

Cut Apart Each Section

Cut apart each section. I use a 28mm rotary cutter with a new blade, and large cutting matScissors work fine too. Optional: If you are using fusible interfacing iron it onto the back side of the fabric before cutting out each piece. If you want to use sew-in interfacing, simply use one of the bow tie sections as a template to cut a piece of interfacing the same size and shape.

If you plan to make a lot of ties, or you’re making them out of your own fabric instead of my DIY patterns, consider investing in a set of laser-cut acrylic templates I designed to speed up this step. The shapes correspond to the patterns printed on my DIY bow tie fabric (as shown below).

Otherwise, just use a pair of scissors or a rotary cutter and cutting mat to carefully cut out the shapes.

Next, we’ll pin the pieces together and get ready for sewing.
