Description

Guilt no more!!
I was feeling bad about the fact that Missy had something handmade and Mal didn’t. FIXED IT!!
Pattern: Purl Bee Little Boy’s Tie
Fabric: Keri Beyer for In The Beginning Fabrics, Rocket Scientist

So neat!!!
I am super excited about this tie! I didn’t cut any of the pieces on the bias like the pattern stated and there is A LOT of hand sewing. Like 95% of this was hand-sewn. But it was sort of therapeutic. The pressing instructions make it so that all the pieces line up so effortlessly that it’s a gem to sew up. I’ve had this fabric for over a year and I am glad to have finally used it for something. There is enough left for a matching tie for his brother someday. He’s a bow tie sort of boy, I think.
