From Mike Horner:

Recently I needed to make a bow tie for a hand puppet I made...and I recalled a simple method for making bow ties that you had shared years ago (perhaps in your "Making Speaksakes" booklet). 

If I recall correctly you used felt and simply hot glued the edges.  I used the same method but used a slightly shiny fabric and sewed the edges.  Simple and looks great!

Thanks for sharing all your tips and tricks over the years...they come in handy!

From Mr. D:  Yes, the bow tie pattern was in the "Creating Speaksakes" book.  It's encouraging for me to hear that those past ideas are continuing to prove themselves useful today!   I still have a few copies of the "Speaksakes" book.  If you are reading this and are interested in receiving a copy, send me an email.
