Tie by Pauly

You may remember a few weeks ago I mentioned that my husband was going to try making himself a tie. Well, he did it!

I am very impressed with the finish he has achieved and I love the label he added to the back. He made the label using fabric tape and alphabet stamps he bought in Berylune.

Paul decided he wanted to be able to make a tie from a fat quarter and this wasn’t quite big enough for the pattern so he altered the pattern to make it fit on the fabric he had. This took a lot more time and patience than I would have had, but it was worth it as the finished tie has worked really well.

Despite the pattern warning that it might not produce a tie that can be tied in a double Windsor knot Paul was able to do this easily and his finished tie is no thicker than a shop bought one. The pattern for the tie was from Georgia Leigh if you want to try making one.
