It seems pretty unfair to me that boys don't get to do a lot of accessorizing
Girls get jewelry, hair stuff, bags and so on, but there isn't a lot in the ways of accessories for boys...but there are ties...the ultimate boy accessory!
Benny first asked me for a tie when Rebe was getting ready to start back to school in August (she wears a little tie as part of her uniform). At this time we were also reading quite a lot of Milly Molly Mandy. In those books Benny's favourite character and, lets face it, his idol Billy Blunt wears a neck tie too:
So I made him a neck tie. His first one was the mushroom one. A friend of mine sent me a huge fabric stash for my birthday and Benny immediately picked out the mushroom print as his favourite (as only Benny would). It was the prefect size to make in to a little neck tie.
If there is any interest I would be very happy to post a tutorial here :-)
