I mentioned earlier this week that I completely ran out of time to make the kiddos’ Easter outfits this year. Bummer. I really enjoy making their holiday outfits because, hmmmmm, I don’t know why. Maybe it’s a good excuse to make them something new? And justifies the purchase of new fabric? However, this year I found some really cute things at the store last minute while shopping for something else…..and just went with it.
However, I couldn’t find Connor a tie to wear with his shirt and vest. Well, I couldn’t find one that matched while out shopping that day. Yeah, we could have skipped it altogether but there are only so many years before he actually cares what he’s wearing. So for now, he lets me decide. :)
So, I made him a bowtie. And the little man loves it!
And it’s not a real bowtie that you tie……..it’s totally the cheater version. With a velcro closure. But most important…….it’s SPEEDY QUICK to make!
Have I ever told you that Connor is kinda nutty? And has this bubbly giggle that is completely contagious? All I wanted him to do was stand here and let me photograph his little bowtie…..but the kid couldn’t keep a straight face. Soon after, we were all laughing. Ahhhhh….this kid. I hope he never loses that sweet laugh!
However, he thinks the bowtie is super cool because it’s, hmmmmm, I’m not sure why he thought it was so cool. Probably because it was something different than the normal straight tie that he wears to church. And you know, bowties on a little boys are kind of darling!
Yeah, this simple little bowtie came to the rescue for Easter this year. In under an hour.
And gosh, I love that little face!
Would you like to make one too?
