The perfect Christmas accessory, whether you are young or old...
My dad has had this Christmas bowtie for as long as I can remember, and he wears it every Christmas morning, and only then. My parents used to make us get dressed into nice Sunday best clothes. I'm not exactly sure why...maybe it was to remember what the holiday is about, amidst all the gift frenzy. But no Christmas morning would be complete without my Daddy's bowtie.
And now I can carry on the tradition with my family.
And so can you!

|Step 4: Sew lines into each felt leaf, if you desire. I used white thread so it would really pop. Step 5: Cut a small rectangle of felt. Overlap the leafs slightly and then use the felt to secure the leaves together.|
|Step 8: Cut another rectangle and sew it over the top of everything. Your bowtie should be sturdy and sewn securely. Step 9: Hot glue on your poms for the berries. Clip all threads and voila! The cutest thing ever...love Roy. <-- (name that quote!)|
Wouldn't this be so fun for your Christmas card picture?? Um, so I'm probably way late with that idea, sorry. And if you don't have any boys, make it into a headband for you or your little gal!
