baby boy tie shirt

Time to whip out the old sewing machine.  Baby brother grew out of the vest I made a few months back to match his sister's outfits.  So, here's my quick fix to keep them all matching.  I try not to be too cheesy-but it just makes me smile- what can I say.   These things are selling like hotcakes in Utah, so I hear.

I could post a tutorial, but its pretty self explanatory.  I traced the end of one of my husband's ties onto a piece of paper.  Then I placed the paper design on my fabric, and gave it a slight angle so the stripes weren't exactly vertical or horizontal, then cut it out.  I just laid it on the shirt, placed a few pins in, and zigzagged all the way around.  I played with a scrap of fabric first to make sure the zigzag settings would work.  That's it!  And uses hardly any fabric!


  1. I hope you're making one for me!!! :)

  2. Did you make their bows too? SO.FRIGGIN'.CUTE!!!!!!!
