Each Sunday for church my son used to wear a little clip-on tie, which meant it got dirty, fast!
I cleaned it a couple of times, but after a while it just got bad.
I looked around for little boys ties for a while, and I finally bought one online that had the elastic around the neck.
It ended up being a little short, but it was better than the dirty one.
Well, last week as my husband was getting ready for work, I saw him throw a tie into the garbage.
Shocked and horrified that all of that fabric was going to waste, I ran over and grabbed it out.
My husband has had this tie for a couple of years, and it has some stains on it. My husband told me it wasn't worth it to have it dry cleaned because it was a cheaper tie.
I decided right then and there to turn my husband's tie into a tie for our son.
I was so excited with my new challenge, and I think it turned out pretty well for my first attempt.
I was going to make a 'fake' tie, (you know, the ones with the elastic around the neck), but my husband said it would be better to make it into a 'real' tie, that was as our son grows, the tie is adjustable.
