Surely I could use some of it for something…
I grabbed the prettiest tie in the pile and got to work. I only had a little bit of time until the littlest one woke up from his nap, so this is what I came up with. It’s super easy, and very quick, and I think it’s just really darn cute! I took pictures after the fact but it should be easy to follow.
Grab a tie, some scissors, velcro, a needle and thread!
1. Cut the tie. Helps to have your glasses handy to measure
2. Unfold the tie and reverse it so it is inside out, and sew across the bottom. I used a machine for this but you can do it by hand!
3. Flip it back so it is right side out and sew on your velcro pieces (I did this by hand). There is a gap where the seam of the tie meets that is not sewn together, so I made sure to sew that velcro piece on to both sides to help keep the tie closed.
4. Put your glasses in and close that baby up!
Now you never have a reason to get rid of a beautiful tie again! This would make a great gift for Father’s Day, just make sure you have Daddy’s permission to use one of his ties. 🙂
