Yesterday I tried out this pattern. It was the easiest, most fun pattern I’ve done in a long time! And with NO hand sewing like other tie patterns. I’m so excited about these, especially now that I’m having another boy. The best part is the pattern comes with 5 different tie patterns, including a tie for Dad so I can make my husband and son matching ties for Christmas! Made with "man" fabric of course.
The ties I made were with the classic guy pattern. The first tie I made with really light interfacing as the pattern called for, but the second tie ( on my son in the picture) I used no interfacing and actually liked it better. With starch it was nice and crisp even without the interfacing. And with my fabric I didn’t cut on the bias, so I only used about 1/3 yard fabric for one tie. Which means each tie cost me like 3 bucks! And the second tie took me under 20 minutes to make. Which means my poor sons are going to have new ties every Sunday for the rest of their lives.
Megan was sweet enough to send me 2 extra patterns to giveaway. To enter just leave a comment on this post before noon on Monday the 23rd. You can also buy the pattern here in her etsy shop or order a ready made tie here. Good luck!
