Deep Electric Blue
I came across this fabric in a famous fabric store in Amsterdam. I loved the colour and pattern immediately. It is so serious and mature but the floral pattern still reflects with a bright electric blue sheen that brings humor and spark to the whole experience. Even though the underlying colour is deep dark the origami butterfly bow tie has a definite lightness.
Making these origami butterflies started when I wanted to decorate my sister's dress with them. However this took a sharp turn when I realized the butterfly would look super cool as a bow tie. It took me a couple of months, some sleepless nights and dozens of disfigured butterflies (RIP) before I settled for the final design. I am very happy now as it really resembles a real life butterfly and also has a lot of fullness and depth.
My biggest challenge was the fraying edges. Luckily I solved this literally in my sleep as my brain was racing and the solution came to me :D. Now the bow ties have beautiful clean finish with no raw edges visible.
I take great care when making these bow ties. I put a lot of love and passion into making sure they look great. I want them to look special because they will make you feel special! Despite this there may be slight differences between individual butterflies and the position of the fabric pattern may vary. But that's the nature and beauty of hand made products. They are all originals!
The collar tape is made out of the same fabric and on the inside is lined with a lilac satin ribbon. I have a multitude of different satin ribbons for the collar tape if you want a different colous. Just let me know ;)The closing is super easy, just a simple hook. And the length of the tape adjustable up to 48cm (19'') of the neck circumference.
