Hello handsome! Sew-up a bow tie

Free bow tie sewing pattern

There is something wonderfully decadent about having a free 10 minutes to curl up with a cuppa and our laptop to browse what’s new in the sewing world. It’s always a joy to see what our favourite bloggers are up to, and seek out the best places to find tutorials and patterns in the sewing community. Today we discovered a treasure trove of projects to try – over in the Sewing Academy section at www.createandcraft.tv.  It’s packed with free downloadable sewing patterns and projects for you to reach for your sewing kit and play around with.

This Bow Tie is by Michael Coates and you can download his sewing pattern for it over in the Sewing Academy Downloads section, to make a fun gift for the men in your life. We do love a thirty DIY gift idea that we can sew up in an evening with Christmas around the corner! The Sewing Academy doesn’t just offer downloads, they’ve got all sorts of how to guides and video tutorials on offer too, on everything from how to sew a blind hem or buttonhole to a monthly quilting classroom. Now we just need to decide what to sew-up first…
