Katy Moss' Profile
What do a paper grocery bag and some scrap upholstery fabric have to do with our shop? It’s how we got our start making bow ties last summer!
Let me explain. I’m Kate, a gal who always has a project going, and my hubby JoeMoe has been a bow tie fan for as long as I’ve known him. So it seemed like a perfect fit to use my skills to create something he loved. One night after dinner, I took a beloved bow tie from his closet, made a pattern by tracing a careful outline onto a brown paper bag (without getting ink on the tie, I promise) and started sewing.
Not expecting the first try to succeed, that first bow tie was made from a light blue upholstery fabric covered in dark blue seashells – a remnant left over from when a friend recovered one of her chairs. Nevertheless, hubby loved it and wore it to work the next day!...
