Easter Ties

This year, I wanted to make some new ties for my boys to wear to church on Easter.  Yes, I sewed four matching little ties and then appliqued a tie onto a onesie for my baby.  My boys love them and I got lots of compliments at church.

Sewing a tie is surprisingly easy.  I used this pattern and I highly recommend it. (No, they are not paying me to say that - I bought this pattern months ago and have used it a few times now with great results.)  I did make a couple of changes.  I didn't cut the fabric on the bias, and I did not use interfacing.  I was able to get all five ties out of one yard of fabric and one yard of lining fabric, with leftovers.  They look great and I think the weight and feel to them is perfect, even without the interfacing.

I used this tutorial and template from Crap I've Made for the appliqued tie onesie.  It was easy, and I think it looks really cute!
