I think it makes them look so stinkin’ handsome and CUTE. When I found out I was having a boy, I knew I wanted to make some ties for him cuz I knew it was one of the few things you could do to “doll” up your boy. So, that’s what I did. Today, I am going to show you how I make these with this Reversible Baby Boy Ties Tutorial.
-Home Dec Fabric
-3/8 inch Elastic (11+ inches per tie)
-Fray Check (if wanted)
3. Thread sewing machine with matching color thread. I usually do two different colors. For this one, I did offwhite thread on top and blue on bottom.
4. Make sure elastic is a little over 11 inches long. Put fabric pieces together and add one side of elastic to the top and insert in between fabric about 1/2 inch. Start sewing a straight stitch and be sure to back stitch over the elastic.
5. Continue sewing in a straight line, and turn when you come to the corners. When you get back to the top, insert the other end of the elastic about 1/2 inch and sew (be sure to back stitch again over the elastic). Continue all the way until where you started and back stitch.
6. Now go through and cut off all the areas of the tie where the overlap isn’t just right. Finish it off by Fray Checking if desired. The tie will fray on the edges over time, but it still looks soo cute frayed.
This is the most simple, easy tie anyone could make, and it’s great cuz it’s REVERSIBLE!! Not to mention, it is also the best boy accessory out there!
Easy Peasy and CUTE!
