Okay, this would have been a much better post if I had done it right before Father's Day instead of right after, but I still love the idea and can't wait to use the tutorial myself. Making a tie for Wyatt has been in the back of my mind for a long time, but my little sister was on the ball and actually made one for her son using this tutorial. It is super easy (she's a TERRIBLE sewer and had no problems with it). Just kidding, she's not terrible at all (my next post is going to be another one of her cute quilts), although I did have to explain what top-stitching was to her recently.
As you can see in the picture, she bought two matching ties and used one to make little Emmett's tie and gave the other one to her husband as a Father's Day gift. I think it was such a cute idea, I wouldn't have thought to do matching ties. Isn't Emmett such a cute baby?
