Does your husband have any ties that he doesn’t wear, that are ruined in the front or just not his style. Then reuse them and make a little baby tie! These are so cute and super easy to make. If you can tie a tie, then you can make this. I love all of boy stuff to make, plus my boys love it when I make them things to wear.
I got this tie at a dollar store a long time ago, it’s a nice tie but not really my husband’s style or color. So here are is how you make them:
1) Take a regular tie and tie the back side to the desired length. Once you have the desired length of the tie, measure the size of the child’s neck (with a shirt on) and make the loop that length. I always like to go an inch bigger, just in case.
2) Next cut off the long end of the tie right at the knot. Also, put a couple of stitches in the knot so that it will not fall apart, I always do more than necessary just in case.
3) Cut the loop in the middle
4) Attach velcro to the ends of the loop. I stitched the ends of the tie so they wouldn’t far apart and then added the velcro.
These work great for babies and toddlers, but I even made on for my 4 year old. I just made it longer. It just looks like a nice skinny tie. My boys are always excited for something new!
