I sewed a tie for Thomas today. This weekend we are making a small road trip for a wedding, and he wanted a brownish tie to wear. He doesn’t wear silk so finding ties is not always an easy task. We usually just get them at thrift shops but even then we have to either find polyester or cotton ones which are not as abundant as silk. I decided rather then hunting + searching the thrift shop bins, I would have a go at sewing one for him.

I followed the Purl Bee’s pattern and wonderfully photographed instruction. It took my just about an hour from start to finish and I used all cotton fabrics from my stash. I think I might have to make him a few more now, it was pretty enjoyable.
