Tie one on!

The tutorial I found was for making these... Little boy neckties. I know you think he looks awesome with his new green polka dot tie and his camo.

I had to go online and find out how to tie a necktie. I tried a true Windsor and failed, so I am sticking with the 1/2 Windsor. I still think I need a little practice but at least I can tie one on a wiggly little boy. These are my first two, but they are so easy I am going to try some more. I also think I need a lighter weight interfacing. That way it won't stick out quite so much.

The stripe one doesn't fit well so I think that one of his bears will wear it. Or I will find a tiny friend who could use a necktie.
