I needed help to pull off this little project. I can sew on a button w/o self-harming but that is about it. I have enlisted some skilled help to see what a bowtie would be like if made out of #4 canvas... with the blue ticking(?)/line guides left in. Envisioning this as the sort of thing you might wear w/ a work shirt while at the head of a parade. At a county fair. While driving your dad's tractor.
ETA couple of weeks.
