I was out shopping last week trying to find something for my Ashyr-pie to wear for Easter--you know for one of those sweet little boy outfits with a dress shirt, vest, and necktie. But then I was like shoot, what am I doing? He already has a white sweater vest, several dress shirts that fit, and some khakis. Why bother spending money on a new outfit he will wear once and get blueberry applesauce all over anyway? So I hit up a thrift store and snagged this mens necktie for a buck and decided I would make him a little tie instead.
1. I cut a V-shape into the tie, just before it started to flare out towards the other end.
2. Then I cut out some of the middle layer to make it easier to sew it back up.
3. Just used a simple blanket stitch here.
4. Now tie it and that's it!
Super easy, cheap, and exactly the colors I was looking for. I cannot wait until next Sunday to see him wearing it! He's gonna look so handsome. :) (That is if he will cooperate by letting me put it on him and actually keep it on during church).
