                       I have done the bow post before but this time i made a bow tie using African prints.....used it cos i thought it was gonna look good plus such look is trending now....
              ~ first of all i cut the fabric into a square shape
              ~ folded it inside out so i could sew it,....(through the wrong side)
              ~ sewed from the top edge till nearly the end.....didnt finish sewing till the end completely..i left space so that i could be able to turn it back to the right side.
              ~ when done with that, i used a thread to tie it from the middle( its optional)...did it so that it will bring out the shape of the bow i wanted......
              ~ after the thread..... i used a cut out of the fabric to closed up the thread.......i sewed it on top of the thread..................
                 i then added some long ribbons from the back...sewed it also........
       After that i tried the look, that's putting the bow over a white shirt.........i used a pin to attach the bow to the shirt.....and i liked it.......next thing im gonna do is get bits and pieces out of the African prints i do have and make some bow ties with them.....which i'm only gonna wear on white or something brightly colored.....................:)
