Make Dad a Tie
I must start by telling you that my husband generally doesn’t wear ties. He doesn’t need one for work, and we rarely go to events that require them. BUT I couldn’t resist making him one this year after seeing all the brilliant ties out there being made. Ha! Plus, it is tradition, right? Give Dad a tie. Or in this case, Make Dad a Tie.
I found a FREE pattern over on Craftsy by Sweet Shop Sewing. I made the feather print tie first, using this pattern. Only, it came out too small. It would definitely fit a little boy.
So I gave it another try. This time I used Four Corners Circles Fabric and stripe gray sparkle fabric by liZ and Elizabeth from Simple Simon. I lurve this fabric.
I used the same pattern, only I lengthened the back piece to match the front piece. It worked out to be 58 inches long, which is perfect for my 5’11” guy.
Insert your favorite Dad, and you are done!
Now he is prepared for any occasion that requires a bit of fancying up.
Happy Father’s Day to all you fantastic Dad’s out there! You are so needed in this world, and you are loved.
