striped bow tee

Recently I saw this adorable striped bow top from Spool No. 72 via The Daybook.
Then I saw this tee on sale for $5 at Old Navy and this bow tee tutorial on I Still Love You in close succession.

Clearly this was DIY destiny.I followed the tutorial from I Still Love You along with this one at Blue-Eyed Freckle (because I'm a beginner sewer and need all the help I can get!) to make a bow out of a second (identical) t-shirt and attach it to the unadorned $5 striped tee. And now I have this fun knockoff!
