How To: Make a Tiny Tie from a Full-Sized One
This one’s fun, whether making a tie for a tyke, or turning your own into a clip-on cause you can’t quite master that double windsor.
Marigold from Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky! has created an ace tutorial for recycling a full-sized tie into one that’ll work on a tinier snazzy dresser. “Now we’s simple folk and we don’t really go for them fancy clothes, and I don’t like spending big money on clothes I know will only be worn once or twice. So I hit up some consignment shops and overstock stores like Ross and Marshall’s and managed to throw together two formal outfits for my kids for under $30. The one thing I couldn’t find was a cute tie for Milo to match his hand-me-down navy pinstripe trousers. So I did what any crafty momma would do–found a $3 tie on clearance in the men’s section and made a few cuts and and stitches and managed to make a very cute boy’s tie.”
