The (Little) Boys’ Ties

I got Seth and Ezra and Owen’s ties done to match Jon’s tie.

For their ties, I used this free pattern and tutorial. I used the size 2-5T for Owen and Ezra, but Seth needed his tie to be bigger (he’s almost 9) so I slashed and spread the pattern to make it wider and longer. I added about 5 inches of length. I also made his neck piece longer than what is specified in the tutorial.

I added tie keepers to the ties like I show in my men’s tie tutorial. I made Seth’s tie last, and by then I thought of how cool it would be to embroider their names on their ties. Too bad it was too late to do the other boys’ names. Next time.

Now, I’m just trying to finish my Easter outfit.

P.S. My latest fabric order came in the mail today. I can’t wait to make stuff out of all of this delicious fabric.
