12 Days of Christmas Crafting - Day 8

Day 8- Holiday Tie

Tis the season for looking your best :)

I love putting my little man in a tie.  This year he wanted to pick it out.  Unfortunately the one he wanted was adult sized.  It was too cute to pass up though.  It has Santa and his sleigh and...of course, Rudolph!  His favorite part? Rudolph's nose lights up and the tie plays "Santa Clause is Coming to Town" at the push of a button (of course we will be practicing moderation on the button pushing lol).

I used the tutorial HERE.

I basically just disassembled the adult tie and cut it up reassembling it according to her pattern/tutorial.  There is enough material from the adult tie to make all the pieces!

*tips: when sewing with satin it's best to have a new needle in your machine and to loosen up your tension and widen your stitch a bit.

Easy :)  

Happy Sewing!
