Benny loves wearing ties. I started making them for him last summer (blog post here) and I promised then that I would make a tutorial.
I made Benny 2 new ties for his birthday tomorrow and took picture of the process, so here is the promised tutorial :-)
First make your template. If you have a tie at home, just draw around this. If it is a small child's tie then give yourself a 1/2 inch all around it for seam allowance and if it is an adult tie, just draw around it.
Draw a line 3 inches across. In the center of this line measure down 1.5 inches. Draw a straight line from the centre point to each edge. At the edge points measure 13 inches along, tapered in slightly so that you have a tie shape, like in the picture above.
turn the tie right side out. I use a knitting needle to make sure that all of the edges are pushed out then iron to get the lovely pointed edges.
And that's it, a wee boy's tie.
Happy sewing :-)
