Please note that yes, I did grown up in the eighties when it was perfectly acceptable for girls to wear ties. So, I HAVE been taught how to do it, but my tie-tying skills are a little rusty.
I decided to make this for Peter because he occasionally likes to "dress fancy" for school and the one sad little clip on tie he has is taking a beating. Plus, I thought he should have a 'real' tie. Don't you love how fun this fabric is for little boys? With all those colors he could wear it with any color shirt. Now I just need to round up some penny loafers as he has been asking for those as well. And don't get me wrong, most days he is perfectly fine wearing ripped jeans and the most faded and worn t-shirt he can find.
Maybe now I can try another sewing project without so much drama and debate. I don't allow myself much time for sewing so it feels like such a luxury to me. It's like if you were on a diet and you only allowed yourself one dessert a month - you would spend a lot of time picking just the right one - am I right? Yes, it's sort of like that. I must say, this was a tasty one but it has left me wanting just a few more bites.
