While perusing tons of free sewing patterns and tutorials online, I came across Tilly and The Buttons tutorial on a bowtie belt. I thought this would be a cute way to make a bow tie for my dog. I made a few modifications to accommodate his neck instead of my waist, and here is the result:

It was pretty easy to make. I had to readjust the collar though. Originally I made it with Tilly’s direction, and it was too wide, so I fixed it. There was more hand sewing than I anticipated which takes me longer than it probably should, so a more seasoned sewer would have finished this faster than I did.
