tie one on

Who said Dad is the only one that should get a tie for Christmas? If you have a hard time getting your little guy to wear a tie to church or formal functions, give him something he can't argue with. Seriously, what kid wouldn't want to wear one of these? Ditch preppy for skater dude. He'll still look cleaned up, but he'll keep a sense of his own style. Or, try matching ties for Dad and son, or a Christmas tie for your family Christmas card photo. These were made with McCall's pattern M2447. Super simple, and the pattern offers two lengths. We've had requests for gifts for guys, and this one was a favorite, especially since it works for Dads and kids. So get going--only 22 days left!

Those are so cute! Ive never thought to make a tie before, but it seems as though it should be pretty easy!

I've done this before and the ties always looked so cute on the boys. Now that the boys are older, they just want to buy ties.

I am married to one of the few men in the world who love to wear ties. How this happened, I do not know, because he married someone who wears high tops with skirts to work. Ha! These are wonderful. I have always shied away from making ties because I thought the fabric had to be silk/silky? Are these made of cotton? Thank you for sharing. Kelly

These are cotton prints I found at the local quilt shop. You can really make ties out of any material. My husband's tie collection from his single days proves this true. I think he owned a tie made out of awful curtains a la Von Trapp family. hee.
