Easter Neck Ties

I spent the day with Jennifer from Jennifer Sews Again learning & trying to make neck ties. I have always wanted to do this and so had sue - so I guess now is as good of time as any. We scoured the creative sewing blogs for patterns, trying some but just not happy with the results. We ended up deconstructing an existing tie. We un-stitched all the pieces, pressed them, then traced them and came up with our own pattern. It worked great. Ties are just a little sewing on the machine and the rest is pressing and hand stitching! Now we will have ties that match the girl's skirts for Easter!

  1. you are so clever. Even if i deconstructed a tie, I still wouldn't be able to make a new one!!! Great idea.
