Bow Tie

I hope you had a wonderful Easter!  

We had a great day at church Sunday morning and a fun time easter egg hunting at our neighbor's house afterwards.  But by late afternoon, Drew had a high fever and was moping around the house.
He still has a fever today, but I think it's related to the two new teeth that are poking through his swollen gums.  Poor looks so painful. 

Anyway, for Easter I wanted to make Drew a bow tie to go with the suspenders I found here.  I followed the tutorial from A Lemon Squeezy Home found HERE.  I made a few alterations to make it fit a little better. 

I scaled the pattern pieces from 3"x10" down to 2.5"x9.5" to make an overall smaller bow tie.  
The original pattern was a little too big for a toddler.  
I also narrowed the center piece from 2.5"x4" to 2"x4".  I believe I made the neck piece slightly more narrow, but I don't have the exact measurements.

This was a super easy tutorial to follow and the bow tie turned out really cute!!

{He's wearing the fire hat because it was the easiest way to convince him to wear suspenders.  "Firemen always wear suspenders!"}

Have any leftover Easter ham?

We had this yummy soup tonight and used up our ham and even threw in a few leftover mashed potatoes to make it extra creamy.

Hope You Have A Fabulous Week!
