  • Make a Child's Bow Tie!

    May 3, 2013 by Britex Fabrics

    Jaime from Prudent Baby made this awesome tutorial for making a child’s bow tie. Britex even has the hardware you need for this child's bow tie online! One is never too young to develop a finely tuned fashion sense and je ne sais quoi, and we think that bow ties are perfect for any occasion from weddings, to ice skating in the park, to afternoon tea!


  • Donkey Silk Necktie Bowtie from Britex Fabrics' Fabric

    October 17, 2012 by Britex Fabrics

    Avery from Britex made this dapper clip-on bow tie last night from Britex Fabrics’ necktie silk fabric. We love the wee silvery grey donkeys.  A selection of necktie silk fabrics are available on the 1st floor and in our online store.


  • Make a Clip-On Bow Tie!

    May 18, 2011 by Britex Fabrics


    It is Britex Fabrics mission to rescue the clip-on bow tie from fashion disgrace! Here is an easy-peasy tutorial on how to make a clip-on bow tie, using under ¼ of a yard of fabric. Britex now carries metal hardware clips for both adult's and child's clip-on bow ties online. The foppish clip-on bow tie is one of the quickest methods of dandifying and dignifying an otherwise dull outfit. They add swagger to every collared shirt, whether made of quirky cotton fabric, menswear suiting fabric, or more formal necktie silk. Anyone can sport a bow-tie; hard-boiled detectives, bookish academicians, girlish debutants, or the always fashionable Beau Brummels!
