Bite Sized Sewing: How to Make a Tie

How to make a tie via Craft Snob

Hi everyone. I am so excited to be here today. My name is Kiki and I blog at Kiki and Company where you will find fun printables, projects and plenty of art to cover your home in color!

There are so many things I love to do, but sewing is by far one of my favorites! I adore small projects that can be done quickly, so this series was right up my alley! I have 5 kids and 3 of them are boys. I don’t know about you, but I find OODLES of fun things to sew and make for my girls. It takes some searching for my boys, but these are one of those things I pump out all of the time for them. These are perfect to make for holidays, for family photos, and for gifts BIG and SMALL…and if you can believe it, once you get the hang of them, you can make several in an hour.
