THE BOLO TIE

Hi guys! Hope you are all well.
Here is a little project for you to try. Originating from the Western Cowboys, the bolo tie can still look fashionable as a necklace paired with a sheer shirt. What's even better is its simple to make with little skill required, so everyone can release their inner Cowgirl!

All you will need is:

1 large button
Leather/suede lace
Adjustable toggle
Matching thread

Step 1: Simply thread the lace through the button loop and fold the lace in half, making sure there is an equal length each side.

Step 2: Using the matching thread, sew the lace together near the button hole securely so it will not adjust.

Step 3: At the top of the lace, attach the toggle. This will allow you to adjust the tie to whatever height you want. If you don't want the toggle showing, a large bead can be more discrete.



 There can be so many variations on this tie. From different coloured lace to a variety of shaped buttons. So it can be unique with your own personal touch!
