Baby Tie Tutorial

A few weeks ago Heather needed a tie for her baby. She came up with this ingenious technique and today she's going to share it with us. Hip hip hooray! (p.s. isn't the model adorable?)

absolutely genius! I have been looking for a way to make a cute tie for my baby and this is definately the way I will do it! I am going to buy two ties, one for my baby and one for my husband, that match for father's day at church!

Annie said...

Heather, you are one brilliant mommy.

Bless you! I've been needing to make a tie for my two-year-old because I know he won't keep a clip-on on and he really wants a tie like daddy but everything I've come up with was WAY harder than this!

TJ and Mandi said...

Wow! Thank you so much!!! I have been wanting a tie for my little boy but couldn't find any tutorials anywhere. This is awesome! Thank you!!!!

Erin said...

fantastic! i love it. thanks!

Polly said...

I love this! I was given a whole bunch of old ties right before I saw this, so it was perfect timing. I made some of my own with a couple changes...I used buttonhole elastic and a button, so it can grow with the baby and also managed to get a toddler tie out of what was left. If you'd like to see it, I've got it posted on my blog here http://helpinglittlehands.blogspot.com/ . And of course there's a link back to your blog at the beginning of the post since you had the original idea. Thanks so much!!

Wow! I never thought that is going to be so easy to make a baby tie. I was always looking for baby tie but it is giving a hard time. Now that I know how to do it. It is going to be so easy.

I've seen quite a few upcycled men's tie to boy's tie tutorials. This is by far, the quickest and easiest one I've found yet!
