I developed a line of bow tie template shapes that are my own design. As of November, 2014, there are eight different styles in use. The templates are available as individual low-cost sewing patterns for the DIY/crafter/sewing market , as well as a design file which can be used to create heavy-duty laser-cut acrylic sewing templates for the professional bow tie maker.
The individual downloadable sewing patterns I designed are known as the best low-cost DIY bow tie sewing patterns on the internet. The step-by-step tutorial that accompanies them is a heavily-trafficked page on the web. Many fashion boutiques and startup mens accessories companies use my templates to create their own lines of bow ties.
