Long story short - wanting to make a self tie bow tie for a fancy dress outfit and I have enough fabric from a cheap neck tie to get the four blanks from - but all online instructions call for "fusible interfacing" to back the material. I do not really want to go and buy like 5 meters of this stuff and also want to make it on a budget as I will not wear the bow tie again
so any ideas what else I could use? I have old tie that I could cut up for the lining material - so does it need to be fusible - or could I use that iron on hemming stuff?
any tips / tricks from the tailoring people here?
