i'm a bit picky when it comes to some things, toddler ties are one of those things. i had been looking for a black tie to go with williams new black church shoes but had no luck. until my friend jenny emailed me this tutorial a few weeks ago i was settled on never finding a cute black tie. after reading it i was anxious to make one. i found my tie at the storm cellar for $4.00.
i didn't follow the directions exactly because i wanted to made a real tie that actually tied like a big boy tie does.
my first attempt at it didn't work too well. i begged karl to try and tie it to fit william. he managed to get it around his neck but the knot was so thick, the tie stuck out and the shorter tail was really short.
here it is on him. notice the larger than normal size knot? i knew it was a little off but i really wanted him to wear it once before giving the tie a rework.
the second and better attempt at his tie.
