Father's Day : Tie Making

I have always wanted to make a tie, and I think I might try to do some for Father's day. I've avoided them in the past because I am scared that they will look like the obviously home sewn versions that you see at so many weddings made in a cheap polyester satin in hot pink or ice blue. You know what I'm talking about.

Well, The Purl Bee has THIS great tutorial for making ties and some suggestions on fabrics. I think I will go for it. It will be a great side project for the month. Anyone else want to try? Anyone have any links for "tie like" fabric sources?


  1. I actually saw this one on Purl bee and J has been bugging me to make him a tie, so I really have no excuse not to!

  2. No links, but a girlfriend of mine just sewed ties for each of the groomsmen in her wedding and then stitched labels on the back with the couple's initials, wedding date, and location. How cool is THAT??

  3. Thank you for posting this. I've been wanting to make a tie. Maybe it's time to do it.
