Bow Ties for Baby & Toddler {Tutorial}

I belong to a Sunday School class that is full of women having babies. And it seems like most of the babies that have been born are boys. So, this mom of 3 girls had to get creative. I'm full of ideas for little girls, but boys?? I'm really having to think hard. It's been fun, though. I came up with this idea the other day and couldn't believe how easy it was to make these cute little bow ties complete with elastic so that it stays on easily hidden under a collared shirt. And just in time for Easter!

**UPDATED WITH NEW MEASUREMENTS** - For bigger boys, use the measurements in the post above. For babies and young toddlers, try these >> 1 - 4"x6", 1 - 3.5"x5", 1 - 2"x2.5"

If you don't have time to make these yourself, but really want one for that little man in your life, these will posted in my etsy shop My3Chickadees tomorrow morning! Please stop by for a great deal!

I'm linking this up with some of these great parties!
