The first ever (but hopefully not the last) BIG bow tie draw took place at the V&A Museum of Childhood 26th-30th October 2015. It was fantastic to see so many people getting into the spirit of colouring and having fun and what’s more decorate a number of railings at the museum, maybe in a few years time we will be able to cover all of the railings?! They have given me lots of ideas and I will be using some of particular favourites (at the bottom of the page) to design some new bow ties, then I will have to see if Caroline can make them for me.

If you weren’t there this is how it worked:

You take one of these                                               IMG_0033
and one of these
IMG_0050

use some of these                                or these

IMG_0049             IMG_0052
(and occasionally you’ll get some of these)

but then, you get all of these…..

and these!

which roughly makes some yellow ones, pink ones

blue ones, purple ones, green ones and some with a touch of black

then there’s striped, spotty and dotty
IMG_0055

then chequed and patterned
IMG_0056

there’s were ones with faces and add on bits (like hair and ears!)
IMG_0060

then animal ones and other creatures and ones with drawing
IMG_0061

there were minimilist (which means there’s not too much on them)
IMG_0062

there were miscellaneous (this means things that are put together that are all different sorts)
IMG_0063

and then there were abstract (which means being an idea and not having a definite form)
IMG_0064

and finally my personal favourites

The end! (or is it just the beginning?………….
