tie pattern

And the winner is....


Thank you to all who entered!

If you didn't win you should still give these ties a try!



Ok ladies get out those sewing machines your husbands gave you for Christmas! We are about to get some sewin' on! Let's do this!!!

Aren't the ties just so stinkin' cute!?














I had to bribe Trey with an Ironman Popsicle to get him to wear his Sunday shirt when it wasn't Sunday.




















Doesn't he look handsome!?




















Cut out 2 layers of the tie pattern.














Lay them wrong sides together on top of each other. Pin around the entire tie to hold together. Cut elastic big enough to fit around neck of shirt and pin to the top of tie where marked on the pattern.














Sew between 1/8 and 1/4 inch seam allowance around the entire tie.














And there you have the cutest little tie for your little man.



















I made this one reversible! And I am giving it away! (This giveaway is now closed and a winner has been chosen.) Leave a comment to let me know you are in. Trey or Lucy will pick a winner this weekend!





















Here is the pattern! Just double click on the tie, it will enlarge picture, file, and print!

Play with the pattern. Make it bigger, longer, shorter.

Happy sewing!

Ooohhhh I am in a sewing mode right now... well as much as a non-sewer can be :S BUT can you imagine my three little guys in matching ties?
Hmmm too bad we don't have a fabric store for me to buy some non-girly fabric from.
Great Idea!!

If only I could get me sew on, but it is sew not me :( You do a great job at giving instructions and taking pics! Oh, and I think you need a blog "button" since most all of my friends are in love with you and your blog!

I love your Blog, you are so cute! I have to tell you that my older newhew just loves these, he is 5 and they dont make onesies in his size :) so when I gave my yonger nephews the onsies with them sewn on a few months back the older one got jealous. My sister in-law says that he tries to dress up everyday so that he can wear his "big boy tie"

.... your little boy is so dang cute

Anne said...

ok i love this little thing. and i love how it's not all super grown up manly. like i like the rough edges. you are so creative. and let me just tell these girls that you totally do this on your own. you may get an idea somewhere, but it's your crazy little brain that comes up with these things! you are brilliant. absolutely. and i love what lara said about her 5 year old nephew. you should just make him a onesie to see if he'd wear it. i bet he would! hahaha!

Kelly Munns said...

This is too cute! I've been holding onto the link for a while now. I made two today, with a little alteration. They will be on my blog tomorrow. Thanks for sharing the idea!

Nancy Sabina said...

Hooray! This is just the tutorial I was looking for! Thanks, Tip Junkie, for sending me over here! Finding little-boy ties in the stores is so hard (except holiday season) and I want my litte guys to grow up thinking Sunday = white shirts and ties.

Dawn said...

These were so cute! I made two of them for my 9 y/o son... I used a slightly larger pattern, and they came out GREAT!!
THANKS for the wonderful idea!
