Gabrielle from DesignMom posted about a great sewing project of her own and I wanted to share it with you. I know I don't post enough boy stuff. And I'm sorry for that. I wish I had some more boys in my life to sew for. Maybe someday:)
But Gabrielle's son, Ralph, liked skinny ties, but she said they are surprisingly hard to find — either too long or too expensive for a 13-year-old’s wardrobe. So she bought a whole bunch of regular sized ties at the thrift store for only $1 each. Unfortunately, the tailor said it would be $37 A PIECE to make them skinny. Pretty unbelievable, right. So, being the crafty mom that she is, she decided to do them herself.
Her tutorial is posted on her blog here. If you have a boy that likes to look hip give this little tut a try. And hey, if you have a hip husband this tutorial would probably work for larger ties too.
