ffering one new bowtie designed and handcrafted by Aletha, who exhibits her bow ties at festivals. Made of pure cotton fabric, interfaced for body. Easily adjustable for neck sizes 15 inches to 20 inches. Pretied, easy-to-manage hook and slide on white ribbon twill tape neckband. Not a clip on. This type of designer bow tie is hard to find at a reasonable price.

Bowtie fabric description: Hot pink, orange, white, yellow geometric pattern.

The bow itself measures 5 inches across, 2 inches high at ends.

The second photo shows the adjustable twill ribbon/tape neckband that the finished bow tie is mounted on, to slide so you can hook it anywhere you like. It fits under the collar so that only the bow tie itself shows, as seen in the first photo.

Aletha's husband says that these ties are easy to put on, easy to wear, much more comfortable than conventional long ties.

With manufactured items abounding both here and on Etsy, as a proud creator of my own work, I thought it would be useful to detail my procedure in creating a Gustys bow tie, from start to finish:
1) Be inspired, select a category: e.g.,classic, whimsical, seasonal, topical-themed, occasion.
2) Search for suitable fabric, purchase, and prepare fabric.
3) Make interlining for fabric.
4) Cut fabric, size for men or boys.
5) Cut the neckband, sew fasteners at each end.
6) Fashion the three bow tie parts.
7) Tie double loops together securely.
8) Attach the crosspiece plus adjustable neckband.
9) Take and mount photos to my Studio listings.
10) Write and list descriptions for each bow tie.
11) Print out customer invoice and shipping label.
12) Wrap bow tie in tissue paper.
13) Enclose bow tie, description card, invoice, and feedback notice within folder.
14) Attach shipping label to outer envelope.
15) Seal outer envelope securely.
16) Email customer notice of shipping plus tracking number.
17) Tidy work area -- this doesn't always happen!
18) Deliver bow tie package to post office, personally witness tracking scan.
19) Thank customer for order.
20) Post feedback if site allows (ArtFire and Etsy do not.)
Phew! That's what it takes for each bow tie, plus email queries, keep abreast of constant site changes, etc. Online selling of ones handcrafted goods isn't for wimps!
