created at: 03/18/2010

It’s my hope that, one day, I’ll be able to make every necktie I own, from scratch. Until then, I’m digging on this idea I tripped over at the always awesome Doe-C-Doe: adding a little custom embroidery to a store-bought tie, creating lots of handmade flair and plenty of personality.A little research later, and I came up with an easy-to-follow how-to from CraftStylish. Here’s what you’ll need.

  • A tie
  • A design to stitch
  • Tracing paper
  • Ballpoint pen
  • Transfer paper
  • Embroidery floss
  • Needle
  • Pins
