So today is the birthday of the super stylish man in my life. We're still in Venice and today we're gonna be doing all the things the birthday boy desires, hopefully that means eating loads of gelato (I'm pretty sure it does).
Two or three weeks before we left for Europe I got into a complete tizz 'cause I had no clue what I could get him for his birthday, so I did what any sensible person would and searched his pinterest for inspiration. I came up with the idea of making him a cotton bow tie which is almost impossible to find in Cape Town for a decent price (believe me, we've looked). In the end I had made two bow ties and one neck tie. All three are very rough, I'm far from an expert when it comes to sewing things, but I do quite like how they turned out.
