My husband asked me to make him a bow tie the other day, for “bow tie Saturday” at his job. Well, I have been waiting for this moment for a long time, I tell you.
I love men in bow ties!
Especially “Pigeon” bow ties!
I got a super wonderful tutorial here at Sew Like My Mom. He, of course, wanted one to tie on, not the velcro type.
So I made two.
The Bee saw us going outside for a photo session, and she grabbed one, made a quick and sloppy attempt at the bow tie knot, and jumped in the photos.
And just like that we had ourselves a memory.
It is a rare thing to have a time like this, when normally we spend our lives running from place to place, activity to chore. I love that we spontaneously got to goof around for a few minutes. A precious moment between a teen and her Papa.
And it all started with a bow tie.
