Sewing today


I managed to make it to sit n sew today and this shiny green tie was what I sewed. (Modelled here by Miss 13) It is my practice tie because I am making ties for my son's wedding. I got the pattern from the purl bee. The pattern comes with a fantastic step by step tutorial which is completely amazing and made sewing this tie so straightforward. The pattern uses a different fabric from the one I will be using, which is one reason why I made a practice one to start with, so I will have to change the pattern a little to make it work with my fabric. Apart from that (changing the pattern) it was pretty successful. So. Change the pattern. Make 7 ties. (Will I be good at ties or what by the time I finish?!)

Looks good, Kris!
Maybe you'll want to turn tie making into a business after completing the ones for your son's wedding. ;o)

Yep I second what Katherine said...start your own tie shop.I was going to start my own business selling baby bibs but by the time I finished 25 for Little P last year I was over it.

The tie modelled by Miss 13 looks just like a bought one.

You'd better get a wriggle on with those ties too. It's only a couple of weeks until W Day isnt it?

I remember seeing that pattern some time ago and thinking "now I know how ties are made" - all that bias cutting. Are the ties you are going to make the same colour as that modelled by Miss 13?
