This time on Threadbanger, Rob and Corinne have been showing you how to DIY your prom threads. Now it just wouldn't be fair if we only worked on dresses for the girls. So, here's a simple tutorial on how to make a bow tie out of an old scarf. To see more of threadbanger, subscribe to us on itunes!

What you need:

An old scarf or 1 yard of fabric
2 old ties
bow tie pattern (found on the threadbanger blog)
sewing machine

Step 1: Getting Started

1. First thing is to get about one yard of fabric. We used fabric from an old scarf we found at a thrift store.

2. Go to the Blog at Threadbanger.com and download the bow tie pattern. Cut out the pattern from a large sheet of paper.
<p>That dress she cut up and re-did was way too pretty before........ :( ruined a nice dress...!</p>
Very simple, yet lovely outfit! Love the accessories as well! <br><a href="http://factoryextreme.com/Mens-Leather-Jackets.html" rel="nofollow">FactoryExtreme</a> <br>
Duct tape seems to be the new &quot;in&quot; thing to make clothing and accessories out of. There was a contest to see who could make the best <a href="http://www.promgirl.net/" rel="nofollow">prom dresses</a> out of duct tape. I was blown away at the creativity these kids used.
I am having trouble figuring out how big to make the bow tie. do you know of any references of any kind?
sweet. i'm going to gay prom in a about week and i'm totally making this.
yeah in salt lake city there is a gay prom, so me and some of my friends are going so we can show our support.(only two of us are gay)
In Salt Lake City? In Utah the most religious state of them all? Damn, that is some sly stuff.
personally i liked the older version of the dress.
Ditto! ;)
