In this way you will get a single and final piece of your bow tie pattern.
Cutting Bow Tie Fabric
Now you need to cut and iron your bow tie fabric. There should be no air bubbles in your fabric before you apply interfacing. Cut 4 pieces right from bow tie fabric. Then you need to cut 2 pieces from interfacing. Pin those 2 interfacing pieces right with those 2 fabric pieces. Now iron them together.

After stitching, you will see that 2 bow tie pieces will come in front of you. Pin both of them and backside of their faces should be up. After this you have to sew the perimeter of your bow tie.
