When Mur-Man was a baby I picked up a really cute kid tie at a baby boutique.  Not super spendy, but I did know that I could re-create this tie for a lot less.

And guess what WOMS—it worked!

Simply create a tie pattern and trace it onto Fusible Interfacing (Wonder-Under).  Cut out.

Then iron your pattern onto your selected fabric (I opted to do all holidays including July 4, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and St. Patrick’s Day).  Cut out the fabric and peel away the interfacing layer (leaving a film on the fabric).

In the meantime you will want to create your tie elastic.  I simply sewed the two ends together (creating a loop).  I sewed multiple times creating a box on the end.

I then placed the elastic in-between my tie and my tie backing and ironed (wrong sides together).

From there, I sewed a ¼ inch seam around the edge. 

You will then want to cut out the excess fabric.

And there you have it…a tie (multiple ties for multiple seasons).  I think these would make GREAT baby shower gifts or birthday gifts!
