Neck Tie Onesie

The neck tie onesies I've been seeing around are so cute. I had to make one.  I'm becoming a fan of neck ties now!

Using card stock or other firm paper, cut out a pattern the size you want the neck tie to be. Place the pattern on your fabric and trace with a 1/4 to 1/2 inch margin. Cut the fabric tie out. Fold under all edges 1/4 inch and press with an iron.

Fold in any overhanging edges. This is what it looks like with all the sides pressed under.

Place the neck tie right side up on the onesie and pin in place. Sew with a straight stitch all the way around with a narrow margin.

And that's it. What a great way to offer a personalized gift to someone expecting a baby boy!

The Real Deal: I bought the onesie blank from Hobby Lobby for $3.00 and the fabric was less than $1.00. What a deal!

  1. I love doing these with an applique stitch. It avoids the ironing part, but requires a stabilizer. And I say NEVER use Gerber brand, they shrink like crazy every time you wash it!

  2. I love this!

  3. These are so stinkin' cute! I'd love it if you'd link up at my new Tuesday Time Out link party!

  4. This is probably a silly question, as I am a new sewer….How do you sew the tie one JUST the front? The onesies are so tiny!!!

    • Not silly at all! Make sure you remove the arm extension (it fits around the needle and bobbin area to create a larger sewing surface). This allows for sewing items with smaller openings and less wiggle room.
