Free Pattern- The Bonafide Bowtie

I have  a little boy AND a little girl at home, and although I love making things for my daughter, I am always hard pressed to find patterns for my son. I created this Bonafide Bowtie for him because he goes to church on Sundays with his grandmother. Isn’t it adorable? Here’s how you can make one of your own!

The great thing about this pattern is that you can make it for a BOY or a GIRL! I made this one for my son to wear to church, but I quickly found out that this makes a wonderful hair accessory for my little girl! She loves to wear bows in her hair, and this is a perfect comfy headband for her to wear to school. Be sure to post your ravelry projects for the Bonafide Bowtie when you’re done, I’d love to see your projects!
