This is our story... My son wanted a bow tie for Christmas and it was next to impossible to find what he wanted. In February he asked me why I just didn't make him a few. So I went out bought fabric and made him ten,  my husband took a picture of the ones I had made. It was spring when we went downtown for a stroll and dropped into a popular boutique. We mentioned they had no "cool" bowties, we presented the pictures and the rest is history.
