    Heyy, I'm considering making a bowtie for a friend for Christmas and was wondering if the interfacing is really vitally important?

    That would be no problem at all. I love how something that takes so little time, can turn out so nice. Yeah, I just moved to Houston about a year ago, around Cypress!

    Just one nit to pick... this is not a pre-tied (or in any way "tied") bow tie. This is akin to a clip-on bow tie, or a 'no-tie' bow tie.

    I have in the past pre-tied dress ties and bow ties for friends, allowing them to loosen and then tighten the knot to slip it on over their heads; and some of them have left the ties tied for years... decades even in one case I know.

    The key difference is that it can be untied, and it appears fully like a "real" hand-tied tie, versus these types which are, to the discriminatory observer, quite obviously "cheaters" or "fakes"...

    Greetings karossii! Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. I can see where you are coming from...I will rename it to a 'no-tie' bow tie. Thanks for educating me on this.

    I just wanted to create this for Brides that are sewing beginners and hopefully make life a little easier for the diy-ers. So yes, this is a "cheater" bow tie:)

    By the way, I had intended to end my previous comment with another sentence; "That said, I do think this is a wonderful solution for those who don't know how to tie one and don't have friends like me. Well Done." For some reason, that go cut off with the copy/paste into the comments box.

    I do understand the need/market for n-tie ties like this... it wasn't meant to be a purely negative comment, but more a clarification for those purists out there like me.



    Hi karossii!
    O no, thank you for clarifying:) Although I enjoy teaching others, on the same note, I love learning....especially form purists:) That's why I'm on Instructables:)
