I made my boyfriend a collection of bowties for Christmas using this tutorial right here.
It's pretty easy. I mean, you could even just make a bow, and use what are called pin backs in the back to secure it to clothing.

Oh, my heavens, no! :-) Lol! If you are making a bow tie for a child, then the tutorial on (linked above) may be sufficient... But if you actually want to look decent, there is no substitute for a self-tied tie. A pre-tied bow tie is the same as wearing a clip-on necktie -- they are both dreadfully tacky unless you are 10. (No offense meant at Katie whatsoever, though).

Here is a wonderful pattern that repurposes an old necktie and converts it into a bow tie. Very clever!

You're going to want a ruler, seam ripper, sewing machine, stiff cardboard for the pattern, steam iron, iron-on interfacing, and a small, metal bra slide (to make the tie adjustable).

Good luck! :-) Make sure you post your results.

I used this tutorial: to make a bow tie for my winter formal date. You don't need advanced sewing skills for this and self explanatory.
