How to Sew a Tie
If you’re anything like me everytime you go shopping and see adorable clothing you think, “Oh, I could totally make that!” On my latest shopping adventure, I found the most adorable little boy’s ties and bowties. So of course, I thought ” I need to learn how to make a tie!” I did a little searching and came across this free pattern that makes sewing a necktie oh so easy! The fabric itself is cut out by the Cricut Maker machine which means you can load up a few mats with fabric and do the sewing while the Maker does all the cutting for you! That’s basically every seamstresses dream come true, right?
Are you ready to get started?
How To Sew A Neck Tie (Safety Style)
Begin by cutting the fabric to fit the 12 x 24 inch Cricut mat. If you do not have a Cricut Maker you can still print out this pattern and cut it by hand.
Load the mat and press GO!
Carefully peel back the fabric from the mat.
With right sides together line up the two tie pieces. Sew around the entire tie leaving the short top side open.
Clip the corners and turn inside out.
Make sure to use a turning tool to carefully poke out the point of the tie.
Fold the rectangular piece of fabric in half lengthwise.
Sew all three pieces leaving a 3 inch opening along the longest side of the rectangle.
Clip corners turn the tie inside out and press.
Attach a snap or velcro to the neck piece.
Sew the opening on the long tie piece closed.
Tie the necktie to the collar piece.
Now that I’ve learned how to make a necktie, I think learning how to make a bowtie is up next!
