How to Sew a Bow Tie: A Simple Guide for Beginners

Bow tie is unquestionably one of those fashion items that will always stay in style. Making your bow ties is a great option to achieve a distinguished look or add a little refinement to your outfit. This tutorial, written by Tamar - Editor in Chief of CraftsSelection.com, will show you how to create a traditional bow tie endowed with charm and personality.

We're sewing enthusiasts who genuinely care about your choices. Our thorough product comparisons dive into the intricacies of each item, outlining their features, advantages, and disadvantages. With our top product comparisons at UserPostedImage CraftsSelection.com, you'll find the right sewing material among many options.

Choosing Your Bow Tie Style

Choose whether you want to create a "real" bow tie that you knot yourself or go for the ease of a pre-tied bow tie before starting the creation process. Although each design has advantages.


What You'll Need
  • You'll require approximately a ¼ yard of two different fabrics. While some may consider using ribbon, authentic fabric provides an elegant finish that ribbon can't match.
  • You'll need about ½ yard of quality interfacing for your bow tie structure and shape.
  • A sharp pair of scissors is indispensable for precise cutting.
  • Slide Adjusters
  • Hemming Skills or Bonding Tape
  • Pattern Paper
  • Matching Thread

The Crafting Process

Here's a step-by-step guide to creating your classic bow tie:

Pattern Creation

Begin by creating a pattern on the pattern paper. This pattern usually consists of a 'long' and a 'short' piece.

Interfacing Attachment

The back of the outer cloth for the bow tie should be fused with the interfacing.

Pattern Transfer

On the interfacing side of the bow tie fabric, carefully sketch the outline of the pattern.


Once satisfied with the pattern, cut out the bow tie shape from the interfacing-bonded fabric, ensuring clean, neat edges. Repeat this process for the inside fabric, which does not require interfacing.


Start with the two short pieces. Right sides facing in, pin the interfacing-bonded front to the softback. Sew the curves of the bowtie, leaving the 'tail' section open. Turn this section right side out, using a dowel or pen back to assist. Use bonding tape to secure the opening's unfinished edges. Repeat this step for the other side of the bow tie.


Carefully press the bow tie to create crisp, clean edges.



Feed each tail into the tri-glide to join them together. If you prefer, you can also join the two ends together without the tri-glide, similar to a classic shop-bought bow tie.

Remember, if you're using patterned fabric, ensure that you have the 'right side up' for both the left and right sections of the bow tie. This meticulous detail ensures that your pattern remains consistent and not upside down on one side.
