    7. Measure 1 inch from the fold and sew it up. Cut off the excess fabric. Then flip the knot inside out to hide the seam and slide onto the bowtie!

    Have you noticed the cute dogs on TeenNick this week? I figured I'd post some pics just in case.

    Amber, Piper, and Kiki from Alien Surf Girls

    Piper, Amber's dog on Alien Surf Girls, is a police dog. I love dogs who work to make the world a better place! (Watch full episodes of Alien Surf Girls.)

    Petra and Ziggy from Dance Academy

    Petra Hoffman is the new German exchange student on Dance Academy, and Ziggy is her dog. I love dogs that are small enough to pick up. (Watch full episodes of Dance Academy. "My Life En Pointe" features lots of Ziggy.)
