1. I made a bowtie for Justin, with the help of my awesome friend Joanna.  I went to a fabric store and learned about stretch and interfacing, bought a bowtie from Macy’s to use as a pattern, traced it, learned about cutting on the bias, and then sewed it on her sewing machine…except for an awkward bit that I had to hand-sew when I put the two pieces together, it looks really good.  And that part is hidden under his collar anyway.
