Quick Sew Ties

 |  Printables, Uncategorized  |  7 Comments

 There are so many things I love to do, but sewing is by far one of my favorites! I adore small projects that can be done quickly, so being able to whip something up in under an hour is a project I can get on board with!  Of my 5 kids, 3 of them are boys. I don’t know about you, but I find OODLES of fun things to sew and make for my girls. It takes some searching for my boys, but these are one of those things I pump out all of the time for them. These are perfect to make for holidays, for family photos, and for gifts BIG and SMALL…and if you can believe it, once you get the hang of them, you can make several in an hour.


The best part of this pattern, is that you can make it fit a newborn (just by shortening the pattern a bit) and my 9 year old even wears them (just by adding a bit to the length of the pattern). It is super versatile and super quick to make.


Are you ready to get started?

To get started you will need:

THIS free template

1/4 yard tie fabric- this will make 2 ties

1/4 yard of neutral fabric

elastic

velcro (not the sticky kind)

wonder under

sewing machine

needle

iron


Directions:
Like I said, the more ties I made, the easier and faster I have become at it. My kids LOVE to pick out the fabric that will become part of their wardrobe..and it makes a super adorable baby gift to give as well!


I hope your adventures with making these ties are as fun as mine..

 Happy tie making!

    Thank you! My son is in need of new ties. He’s almost ready to learn how to tie his own but I will definitely be giving this a try before that happens.

    I was just wondering if you have to have the wonder under?

      hey savannah, you need to have some kind of stabilizer. if you don’t, when you wash it, it is hard for them to look just right. there are all kinds you can use..i had wonder under so that is what i used! good luck. :)

    Hi!
    I am very excited to have found your site through Pinterest :) my 3 year-old son loves wearing ties “like Daddy”. I may have missed it but what size does this pattern make (without shortening or lengthening)?
    Thanks for your help and I can’t wait to make many!

      hey rachel! so glad you found me. the tie pattern works for about 6 months-6 years (depending how tall your guy is)..that is about what has worked for me without lengthening. i’d love to see your finished ties! thanks for stopping by. :)
