Easy Peasy Tie Shirt

I love all of the shirts and ties out there right now.

This was one of the easiest things to make... ever

Basic Shirt and Tie Tutorial
Start with a plain shirt (we used a Hanes shirt, they come in packs of 5 and my son LOVES to wear them under everything, so I have lots around!)
and a tie.

my biggest debate was "fat" tie or "skinny' tie. We went skinny.

For my size 5 shirt we measued the tie down to about 16.5 inches and cut.

Sew under the edge, it doesn't have to be neat, you won't see it!

Next I sort of "tied" the tie, making sure the second edge remained tucked in the knot. Pin it on the shirt, very important so it doesn't get crooked. And then sew close to the edge and DONE!

Next, rock out in your new tie!

Also looks great under a sweatshirt :)

 Watch for this sweatshirt again...I've spiced it up since these pictures!
