Bow ties are totally in right now, and that makes me happy.  I’ve always liked the look.  My inner geek likes to think that Doctor Who made them cool again.  But does such a classic look ever really go out of style?  I like to think not.  That’s why I’m loving this bow tie necklace by Melissa of Ador.  It’s a great girly adaptation of what is traditionally a gentleman’s attire.  It’s also got stashbusting potential, since I’ve got both piles of fabric and bags of old costume jewelry to dig through!  [how to make a bow tie necklace]

Project estimate:

  • Fabric, on hand
  • Chain necklace, on hand or $1 and up

Total:  Free and up
