Well, You're in luck if your cat prefers bow ties. Or just wants to look like the Doctor.
I made this bow tie for our cats, and also drew out a pattern so the rest of you could outfit your cats as well.
(Luna is in the first two photos, Didi is in the last three and is very concerned about this whole affair)
Step 1: What you'll need:
- iron + board
- thread and needle or sewing machine
- velcro (preferably the iron on type)
- pattern, which is included on this step!
- safety pin or loop turner
Step 2: Cut out your pattern pieces!
- one piece 1.75 x 12 inches
- one piece 2 x 5 inches
- two pieces 2.5 x 3.5 inches
If you have a cat with a collar, you can also skip making the collar and just make the bow. :D
Step 3: Sew together the bow!
Make sure to backstitch at the beginning and end of your work!
Trim the corners and the edges as shown in the second photo (leave the edge with the hole untrimmed!), and then carefully turn the bow right side out. Use a small crochet hook or the tip of a pen to help you get the corners nice and pointy.
Once it's turned right side out, fold in the edges of the hole so it looks nice and straight and iron it flat.
Then sew all around the edges using a 1/8 inch seam allowance. This will close the hole up. The finished product will look like the first photo. :D
