I was recently commissioned to make a self-tie bowtie for a birthday. (I’m taking my chances he doesn’t read the blog.) I think it turned out well. They are pretty fun to make, I don’t know why more people don’t make them?
It’s was hard to get the shape and length the way I wanted it. I made a few poorly constructed prototypes to get it right.
I really want to make more now. . . maybe the skinny “batwing” bowties? Anybody need a bowtie? I’ll trade you one for a donation to our kickstarter?
