|Start with 5 squares, 2 background and 3 bow tie colours.|
|Fold one of your bow tie fabrics in half.|
Make a sandwich with a background square, the folded square, and another bow tie square.
(right sides together)
NB the arrow in the photo above is pointing to the edge of the fold, on the folded fabric square)
|Sew your seam catching the folded fabric between the other squares.|
|This is what it looks like after you have sewn the seam, and folded fabrics back.|
|Now repeat and sew the other 2 squares to the other side of folded fabric.|
NB make sure your fabrics are placed, the opposite of last time so you end up with this.
|Lift it up and open the little pocket made by the folded fabric.|
|Pin the ends, then gently squash block together so the centres meet.|
|Pin the 'pocket' edges into the seam. Don't worry if this is wonky and not straight it works out!|
|See still looks a bit wonky when sewn, but take the pins out and....|
|Open it up to reveal a beautiful 3D Bow Tie block|
